On arrival, Pete & Jools made us feel so very welcome when they met us in Limiti to guide us up to their stunning place in the hills, the road up to the Casa isn't on any sat nav or Google maps.
The drive up the hill is enchanting with magical views as you wind your way up.
Once we arrived at Casa della Zia, they couldn't have been more helpful, showing us the many facilities of the Casa and then going above and beyond offering to assist with the luggage from the car etc.
The villa is perfect for 2 people and was immaculate.
The welcome basket was perfect for our first evening, with all you could need to snack on, prepare a meal and breakfast the following day.
Our stay went from fantastic to fantastic plus plus plus, with every facility we could wish for including a better Wi-Fi connection than we have at home!
Pete & Jools were available for any questions or advice needed (including Jools translating cooking instructions on the back of a packet for us, due to her ability to speak and understand Italian).
However,when we wanted to just relax - we didn't know they were there.
Their hospitality knew no bounds as they invited us to dinner half way through the week - Jools cooking is amazing.
Even though we both have appetites similar to sparrows, we actually devoured her 3 course meal and ensuing enticing and interesting conversation - the perfect way to while away an evening.
Even with our poor Italian, the very well stocked (petrol & diesel pumps included!) local store - Maria's - a 5 minute drive from the villa, made us feel very welcome with the greeting, 'Ciao, are you from Casa della Zia?' without us even saying anything and proceeded to help in English, where our Italian failed.
The other local villages (Polambaro, Casoli etc) are only a short drive away on very quite roads (rush hour constituted of 4 cars!) and are beautifully picturesque with friendly locals, although our desire to explore the area was somewhat curtailed by the craving to be enjoying the facilities and the stunning panorama of the Casa.
Pete & Jools place is an absolute credit to them with every facility being well thought out & is testament to their hard work of renovating both houses and their commitment to being exceptional hosts.
The 3 dogs, although friendly, are not obtrusive - tummies and backs gratefully scratched but they won't hound you!
We could enthuse forever - but...
Thanks so much Pete & Jools, see you again as soon as we can.
