The house is wonderful, and fully equipped with brand new commodities. Its position "between wind and sea" (such is the name of the house) makes it a really special place, with great views over the sea, St. Caterina and the sorrounding countryside. Alessandra was the perfect host: not only she came to pick us up from the ferry, but we found food upon our arrival, she tended to our every need and kindly drove us to the ferry once we had to leave. She is a really lovely person, and so is her house. We truly had an unforgettable time."

It was very clean and comfortable and very well equipped. The house is in a peaceful location and looks out to sea. There is a large sunny terrace where we relaxed enjoying the peace and tranquility.
