Wer Stille, Frieden und die Natur sucht wird hier voll auf seine Kosten kommen. Die Wohnung ist sehr stilvoll und gemütlich eingerichtet. Die Küche ist mit den modernsten Geräten ausgestattet und einem großen geräumigen Kühlschrank. Luca der Vermieter ist der beste Gastgeber den man sich vorstellen kann – er war immer für uns da. Schon vor dem Urlaub hat er uns alle Fragen sofort beantwortet. Da er perfekt englisch und italienisch spricht war die Verständigung kein Problem. Als wir da waren stand er uns mit Rat und Tat zur Seite und hat uns tolle Tipps gegeben wo man hinfahren kann. Und der Service den er anbietet – unschlagbar! Uns ist einmal während dem Kochen mitten in der Woche um 21 Uhr abends das Gas leer gegangen – eine kurze Nachricht an Luca und 10 Min. später war auch schon sein Mitarbeiter mit einer neuen Gasflasche da und hat uns diese eingebaut. Das nenn ich Service! Das Schlafzimmer hat ein rieeeesen großes Bett, bestimmt 220x200m, einfach nur genial, wir haben dort soooooo gut geschlafen! Am Pool – den wir auf Anfrage nutzen durften – haben wir ebenfalls ein paar entspannte Tage verbracht. Unser kleiner Hund war natürlich mit dabei und er hat den Urlaub ebenfalls sehr genossen! Das Wetter war perfekt für ihn: nicht zu heiß. Er konnte auf dem Anwesen frei laufen und wir haben tolle Spaziergänge rund ums Anwesen mit ihm unternommen. Wir haben uns sehr willkommen und aufgehoben gefühlt und kommen bestimmt wieder!
