We spent 10 days in this wonderful, charming paradise. It is well equipped, comfortable and the surrounding is lively forest, with some streams, lot of animals (every evening we saw an animal on our way back home, a deer, fox, rabbit, bobcat). We went there with our two kids (10 years and 5 years old) and both want to come back already. The landscape is amazing. The place is bit isolated which provides good privacy, yet it is easy to drive to the near villages to get supply for example. Francesca and all the family are wonderful hosts, they did all they can to make our stay as pleasant as possible. We will definitely come back!
One of the most special places we have been. We liked it so much. Can be perfect for a romantic holiday. Highly recommended!!
We had a beautiful week in Stefania's lovely holiday villa. Everything was as promised. It is a great place to relax and from which to take day trips, which we did about half the time. We loved snipping rosemary from the bushes and adding it to our omelettes. Other foods were readily available at the Esselunga (supermarket). We were glad we had GPS for navigating, although after a few days we sort of had a feel of which way to go when. We had planned on having two full bathrooms, but the shower in the ground floor bathroom was really too small to turn around in, so we all used the bathroom upstairs for showers. Since we could only shower one at a time anyway (there was plenty of hot water, and water pressure was good, but the water temp would change unexpectedly if a second faucet was in use), that was okay. And we were unsuccessful in using the outdoor grill, but agreed with Stefania that we probably should not have tried to use charcoal left by previous tenants, since it probably had too much moisture from all the humidity. (So -- get yourselves a fresh bag of charcoal!)
A real highlight for me was just walking around the expansive grounds, viewing the olive trees and, through the fence, the next-door vineyard. The mountains and sunsets were stunning too. Stefania keeps the property and the house in beautiful condition, and she is very accommodating in answering questions and providing what you need -- she is a fine host.
