It is a beautiful villa with a fantastic view around the valley The 8 bedrooms and 7 badrooms were a big comfort. Everything we needed was present. The owner showed us his property and invited us for a winetasting. He is a real passionated and pleasant man. I would recommend it definitely for larger groups. Carl C. Belgium
