Villa Sampaguita is the perfect compromise between "tourist-tours-that-are-too-structured" and "being-adventurous-but-frustratingly-lost-or-confused." We gained so much from Tim and Rina's wise and helpful advice as well as their gracious and obliging guidance when we were eager to follow rather than work out the details by ourselves. On the other hand, we fully enjoyed the knowledge we gained from them, so that we could be adventurous on our own as often as we wanted.
Our arrival was delayed in Frankfurt because of an airline strike; therefore, we arrived at Villa Sampaguita one day late. We were frustrated, tired, and still wearing the same clothes from the previous day ... immediately, upon arrival, we felt as though we were 'home'. The weather was brilliant; the patio table, laden with good wine and light appetizers, competed with the radiant green valley below ... oh my. What a fabulous evening of new friends, delicious dinner from Rina in the beautiful dining room, and confidence that we were exactly where we wanted to be!
(Be sure to check out the Villa Sampaguita website and pay special attention to the festivals in September. So many choices, so many things to do!)
Thank you, Tim & Rina!
