Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the wonderful Casa Vialba last summer and had the best family holiday we have had so far. We have 3 children aged between 16-11 years old and it is starting to become difficult to find a holiday that suits all of us but they all loved Casa Vialba. Julie and Carlo were the most generous, lovely hosts - they had even made us a delicious dinner on the first night even though we were several hours late and Julie had stocked our fridge in the Olive House. They were always there if we needed them but they also gave us the space to feel that the house and pool were ours for the 2 weeks we were there.The swimming pool is big and has lovely beds all around and inflatables for the kids. The Olive house is perfect for a family, the kitchen is well equipped and the beds are very comfortable. Our daughter stayed in the apartment and loved having her own space. We would love to come back one day with friends and take the other villa too. The games room was a cool and fantastic space to escape from the heat of the day and kept all our children occupied for hours. Everything about the holiday was perfect but it was the generosity, good humour and genuine warmth and care from Julie and Carlo that made it such a particularly fun, relaxing holiday. We would highly recommend this.

Luxury and peace in stunning surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed with Carlo and Julie at Vialba four times now, and cannot recommend it highly enough. This year (2016) we stayed in the smaller Olive House which is as tasteful and spotless now as it was when we first stayed over 10 years ago. The kitchen is well-equipped and everything in the house works well. The gardens and the estate are beautifully maintained, as are the pools, which are private for each of the two houses.

The location is stunning. Vialba is in a valley which forms part of a national nature reserve. You can explore the valley on foot or on horseback, crossing or walking beside the river and meandering at will, virtually never seeing another person. It is perfect for walkers, runners and cyclists.

At the same time it is not that far from the nearest small town which has gorgeous restaurants and views, and there are ridiculously pretty towns and villages scattered all around (as well as the usual more popular tourist destinations).

If you want to stay put at Vialba though there is plenty to do there and Carlo and Julie will help to provide entertainment - swimming (of course), table tennis, pool, riding, quad-biking and archery.

I highly recommend Vialba as a wonderful holiday destination for families of all ages, and for couples.
