The villa is lovely and perfect for a getaway from it all holiday. The weather was good, not too hot but warm enough. We didn't use the excellent pool as much as we'd have liked due to the weather which was a bit disappointing but it was September after all. We would certainly recommend the villa and would like to come back. Maurizio, the caretaker, could not have been more helpful, friendly and discreet. .All in all a near perfect holiday. Thank you.

The apartment is comfortable , the only disadvantage is the kitchen which is rather small. Apart from that : it was a lovely holiday thanks to the care of the very friendly owners!
