Easy to get to from the motorway. Comfortable villa with everything you need. The hosts were wonderful, helpful and informative at every point. There's plenty to do in the area without having to travel miles to get there. If you want a quiet day at home then the pool area is comfortable and private. We would certainly return and book this villa again.

The kitchen and common areas have everything you would want in a holiday home, the pool was warm and sunny with a great view and a great size for either swimming laps or kids playing. The grounds were big enough for the kids (aged 6-8) to run around and play. Service was great as was the night with the chef. The air conditioning worked well and a great benefit. We had only 2 families (could easily fit more) but chose to pay the supplement for one extra bed as we wanted the 3 kids all together in one room /cottage and that was the only way to get that arrangement. The perfect place for a holiday/vacation in Italy.

Belinda was an excellent and considerate host. The property is meticulously maintained with beautiful furnishings, large rooms, a chef's kitchen, wonderful scenery and outdoor areas. It exceeded all of our expectations, even though the photos and descriptions were clear and accurate. We all agreed that we would be very happy to return for a stay sometime in the future.
