Absolutely stunning

5 of 5
We were met by Loredana, her lovely mum & their beautiful little dog. They are rightly very proud of their villa because it is beautifully presented and really well cared for. We couldn't fault anything. The view is breathtaking! far better than we imagined in a wonderful setting with it's own private grounds. We were so happy at the villa, we didn't really want to leave it at all, but felt we must have a look around the area. Scopello is lovely & quant, really nice courtyard with a number of very good restaurants. The stony beach is lovely too. We also explored San Vito De Capo, which is busier & has lots going on. Our favourite place was the harbour at Castellammare del Golfo. Lovely restaurants and bars which were really trendy. Thank you so much Loredana, we had a fantastic holiday in your beautiful villa and hope to return in the future. Jackie and Ken.

We really loved this villa - HUGE space with lots of areas for chilling out! Nice large table big enough for everyone to sit around. The showers were always warm, which never happens in big villas. Pool is lovely and we really liked the temperature! We BBQ'ed every night :-) We were a family of 8 adults, 3 children and 2 babies. Everyone loved it!
