Beautiful villa, bags of room and well-equipped

5 of 5
Six of us enjoyed a lovely break here, the villa is well furnished, very clean and generously supplied with everything, which was super. The hosts are wonderful, very friendly and helpful, every help was provided from the moment we booked, we felt very cared for. Thank you, Giacomo and team for a wonderful few days.

Just prefect...

We spent a fantastic week in this house. The house is built on a rock, looking on the sea, the sight is beautiful and there is a private beach. The house has everything you need and we had a warm welcome... We will definitely come back!
