A haven of peace and tranquility amidst a background of snowcapped mountains, green valleys and olive groves. VF2 offers an escape from the fast lane and time to reflect on the beauty of the countryside and a slower pace of life. The villas were spotlessly clean and spacious, the grounds are beautifully landscaped with lavender bushes adding to the fragrant atmosphere. We relaxed at the poolside with a good book and the company of the swifts dipping and diving into the water. We watched the changing light on the hillsides and the cloud gather over the snow capped mountains which are within easy reach from the Villas. We ate at the local restaurants like Lu Piccione where Paolo made us feel so welcome, and Bucaniere where we ate 2 courses plus wine for €10 each! Here you can get a coffee for less than £1! This is a great change from tourist Italy. We appreciated David's extensive local knowledge, advice and enthusiasm to ensure his guests have the best holiday possible.
From the moment you turn off the main road and start to climb up the hill that leads to Villasfor2 you know you are in for a treat, the surrounding countryside is stunning. When you reach Villasfor2 (Davids directions are easy to follow) park the car and step out to be faced with the most amazing views. Mountains in one direction and rolling hills leading down to the coast in the other.
Our villa for spotless, with a couple of cold beers and a bottle of wine to welcome us. The pool was perfect, situated on a little terrace so you could gaze over the views whilst doing a couple of lengths.
David & Pauline recommended places to go and places to eat, all of them turned out to be absolutely lovely. The coast is 30 mins away and you can be up in the mountains in the same time in the other direction.
If you are like us and enjoy getting away from the tourist traps and immersing yourselves in the local culture, visiting the local village markets, eating where the locals eat then this is the place to stay.
Check out their website, its very comprehensive and informative, we cant wait to return.
