I stayed here for a week in May with other family members - including 3 adults and 4 children. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great for us, but we still made the most of our holiday and had a fantastic week away.
The Villa is set in the most beautiful grounds. The main house is large, and there is plenty of room for the children to play, both inside and out.
I stayed in the smaller house with my husband, which is really lovely too.
The pool was great on the few days of sun. The children loved it, despite the colder days. It was lovely to sit around, and take in the beautiful views which surround the house.
My husband and sister had an Italian cookery lesson, arranged by Alessandro, the owner. Alessandra, the tutor was fantastic and both learnt so much from her. She was excellent with the children too, who all played a part in making the pasta. The price of the lessons were reasonable and for a small amount more you can enjoy the meal as a family. I would highly recommend this.
I would also recommend having the chef - Marco to the villa to cook for you. We had a great night and the food he prepared was delicious local produce. Make sure you pour him a glass of wine or two!
My husband and step son did the paragliding which was again arranged by Alessandro. It is all done very professionally and safely. They both found the experience exhilarating.
The only two very small issues I would note - We had a 7 seater people carrier. The road to the villa is quite winding and in places steep. Be aware that it isn't the easiest road to manage in a larger vehicle, especially in the bad weather. It is by no means impossible though.
The towels - I am aware that thin cotton towels are the norm in many places, however you can't beat a thick towelling towel that dries you properly. We would all have much preferred this.
We did not take any beach towels with us, but upon request we had some delivered to the villa almost straight away - great service!
All in all a fantastic holiday. Alessandro and his father will look after you without being intrusive. They were fantastic hosts. I would highly recommend this place to anybody considering going. Just book. You won't be disappointed!
