Luigi was a fantastic host. Very kind and accomodating. The apartment is located very close to the main street of the new town and about 12 mins from the old town. Highly recommended!

The swimming pool was fabulous and as my daughter said in her own words was "the highlight". There is a lovely shaded area where we ate and another shaded area by the pool, The tennis court was also a big hit! So too was the BBQ. Even though the villa is about 10 minutes from the city centre and old town, it was not too remote and Alessio and his lovely mother Ada were on hand if we needed anything. They were very helpful if we needed any advice on the area or if we required any recommendations. There are many beautiful beaches nearby and lots of towns and places to visit. Would love to return.
