On arrival we found the villa clean and tidy , with a well equipped kitchen and spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. We enjoyed eating all our meals on the comfortable terrace. The pool is a good size and Mike visited several times, on arrangement to clean it during our stay. We very much enjoyed our stay at the villa which gave us an opportunity to explore local towns and villages including Sapria, Diamanté and Praia a Mare and experience life in rustic Southern Italy.

Very spacious, we were 6 adults and 3 children and we had lots of room to spare. The rooms were very well cleaned and the grounds so well maintained. We had great service from the team, Massiliano, Soloman and Carla, who were always at hand. Shops are local - around a 15 minute walking distance in a small community of friendly people. The house is very secure and private. It is well stocked with utensils for self catering and towels for bathing and pool. Massimiliano was in contact with me from the start right up until I returned home. He responds very quickly to emails. Money well spent, I will go back.
