The inside of the villa is very clean and beautifully decorated with modern bathrooms, a modern kitchen, and nice furnishings. The location is... More

We adored every single part of this villa. I believe there should be a special feature about it in the broadsheets! Spotless, stylish, tasteful & comfort itself. The owners couldn't have been more welcoming! Even the local stray (but extremely well-fed) cat welcomed us every morning by the door, much to my 6 year old son's delight! I speak enough... More

We visited Villa Carolina in Linari, Italy at the end of September, 2012 for a week. The villa exceeded our expectations from the pictures and previous reviews we had seen. The interior was immaculate, beautifully decorated and comfortable for us and the two couples we were traveling with. Each couple had their own bedroom and modern bathroom. The large kitchen... More

We spent our holiday in Villa Karolina with our family. After coming we were greeted by the owners ( Gabriele, Lucia and their daughter Carolina ).

My husband, myself and two other couples had one of the best weeks ever at Villa Carolina. The accomodations were impeccable - we all had plenty of room and the common areas fit all of us and were perfect for hanging out. Lucia and Gabriella were wonderful hosts and Lucia is probably the best chef in all of Italy. She... More
