We stayed in the pink house half way up the hill. It was just perfect. The property was clean and well maintained, now with Wi Fi. Well stocked kitchen, with utensils etc. Lovely covered eating area outside and brick barbeque. We ate outside all the time. All very rustic. Beaches 5/7 mins drive away. Villefranche has great local produce, again only 3/5 mins by car. Francesco, the owner, was really good at pointing us in the direction of the local baker, greengrocer and butcher - so we ate one meal at least per day on the terrace of the Pink house with the fabulous views. The villa has a basketball court too. All such fun - we're booked again for next year and taking friends too.

The owner is lovely and helpful and we were particularly grateful for the meal she cooked for us when we arrived late in the evening. We felt we were in the film set of "The Leopard" at times, this will give readers the idea what the interior of the villa is like. We also enjoyed the gardens and the view of the sea. We would have loved to have known more about the history of the house and the family, perhaps that would be an interesting addition (in other languages than Italian) to the visitor's book for future guests? Our son is a pianist and the icing on the cake would have been if the piano was in tune. Many thanks for a lovely stay, Elisa.
