'A truly wonderful location and house. We had a fantastic week, and can only recommend this place to everybody. The trip up to Mount Acuto is well worth taking - we did it 5 o´clock in the morning and saw the sun rising over the beautiful landscape' 'The villa is absolutely amazing as is the view. The kids spent most of their time in the swimming pool and had a great time. Thank you for being helpful and thoughtful, the villa is very well equipped, we highly recommend it to anyone and would love to come back again' 'The house was absolutely wonderful. So much care and thought had gone into providing the perfect place to relax. We almost felt we were staying in a private hotel. In addition the location was superb, we loved waking up to total silence save for the sound of birds singing. Our three teenage children also loved the house - especially the pool, the barbeque and most importantly the outdoor speakers for the sound system - they were in seventh heaven!'
