The unrelenting pressures of work were still reverberating through my mind as the villa gate slid open to reveal what can only be described as an oasis of beauty. A landscaped garden, strikingly lush and green, consisting of manicured lawns and mature trees with strategic hedging provide a welcome invitation into the grounds of this most beautiful villa. The property is sited within its own substantial borders offering privacy and security for the whole family to enjoy a well earned reprieve from the pressures of everyday modern living. We were greeted by the non resident housekeeper who went on to facilitate a tour the facilities we would have use of for the next 7 days. Inevitably the kids insisted on being shown the pool before anything else and what a pool it is. A large pool as we were later to find out, strategically sited to take full advantage of the days sun was on offer to the entire family. With a diving board at the deeper end and plenty of water toys for family fun in the water there were ample chairs, tables and sunbeds to keep everyone happy. The villa was, as expected spotlessly clean, roomy and well equipped. It is clear that this most beautiful place is not just a holiday villa but is someone's substantial home in the sun. The local supermarket we preferred to use is just a short car ride away and stocked the fresh local produce we were seeking to put on the menu. The nearby town of Franca Villa Fontana is quaint, interesting and has an abundance of choice restaurants catering to family needs. It was always a pleasure returning to the Villa, which even has an external Pizza oven, although we simply ran out of time to use it this time around. We all loved this villa very much and without a doubt I would recommend it to anyone seeking an oasis to relax and enjoy family time in a most beautiful home. We will be returning later this year where I am determined to demonstrate to the family my talents as a Pizza Chef.
