Our stay at was simply sublime! Should I watch the sunset from the pool? Take a dip in the Jacuzzi or have a sauna? Then we can eat on the covered patio, drinking in the astonishing mountain views. If we were lucky we would be treated to an outstanding evening thunder and lighting show. Representatives of our host, Enzo, had been there to greet us and to show us around. Every day they came back to maintain the pool and remove rubbish. Thank you! Please don't get me started on Enzo's kitchen! It's every foodies dream. I regret that I simply didn't have the time to fire up the outside Pizza oven and grill. The Villa is truly 5* luxury, run by great people, surrounded by amazing countryside, towns and villages with amazing food and drink to bring back, relax and enjoy. We will be back! Thank you Enzo and your small team for such a relaxing and comfortable stay. I would recommend this Villa without hesitation. Tim Wass MBE
