About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
The Villa was fantastic , clean and well decorated too. It offered superb accommodation and we were well satisfied. The Pizza Party was both enjoyable and informative. We were eating, drinking and being entertained all at the same time.The pool was absolutely idyllic as were the outdoor living and cooking areas. The village was much closer than we expected and the people in the village were curious and friendly. The restaurant nearby served excellent food and was definitely worth a visitAfter a very enjoyable stay we left reluctantly and will definitely return at sometime in the future.
If you want a holiday away from it all and away from other tourists, then this is definitely for you.

Beyond our expectations!
We stayed in this villa for a special family holiday in May 2016. Our ages ranged from 7 to (almost) 70 and we all had a fabulous week. The pool and villa we thought were stunning and we felt very at home for our stay with everything we could need. We easily travelled for day trips to Pompeii and Herculaneum/Vesuvius as well as exploring more locally. All fantastic, but made so much more so by our hosts..thank you for the hospitality, advice, tourist info, incredible pizza and fun (thinking water pistol fights and ice cream here!) A truly fantastic week.
What a wonderful holiday with wonderful hosts. The villa was perfect and the area stunning. The pool was well used despite the fact it was October and the animals were a treat. But what made this holiday special was people. Samantha, Nicole and their family and friends were so welcoming and friendly and they went out of their way to look after us after a dreadful Storm blocked the road and we couldn't get out!!! The people in the village also looked after us and despite the weather, we had a wonderful time. A special place with special
People. Highly recommended.

a lovely relaxing week
We had a fabulous week staying at this villa. The property was very clean and had everything we needed whilst staying there. The pool was definitely the highlight, especially as we stayed during an extremely hot period. The owners were very friendly and went out of their way to make our stay special and were readily available with any queries we had. We drove to Pompeii for a day which was very interesting but we spent most of our time locally and relaxing by the pool.
Five Star Stay!!!!!
The listing of the property was accurate and the photos of house were just as seen in the internet site. The property was spotless and perfectly maintained.The owners were ever so genuine and friendly and readily at hand to answer any questions that you had. The pool was a real feature of the property and our four teenagers really made the most of it during their visit! The farm animals were of particular interest to the teenage girls and they really loved gathring the hen's eggs every day.We spent a couple of evenings eating out locally and received a very warm welcome from the locals.The property is within easy reach of tourist attractions but yet surprisingly peaceful..nestled in the hills of the countryside.I would rally recommend this property for a visit , I can promise you, you will not want to return home!!
