The house was absolutely perfect, tastefully furnished, very clean and comfortable. We loved the position on a hill slope facing the south, there was a plenty of sun on the terrace all day long so even in March we felt almost like it was summer - but so fresh! And the views were amazing! Massimo (the owner) was very friendly and helpful, thank you very much Massimo! We hope to be back.
