Unsere Kontaktperson Alessandra zeigte uns nach der Ankunft eine Bäckerei und einen Supermarkt in Pozillo, wo wir für unseren täglichen Bedarf einkaufen konnten.Ebenso empfahl sie uns eine Pizzeria in dem Ort, in der wir einige Male sehr gut und preisgünstig speisten. Wir haben unseren Urlaub sehr genossen und können sowohl das Haus als auch die Betreuung vor Ort weiterempfehlen.
