Jamal and his wife Louise are fantastic hosts who complement each other beautifully. Jamal is a gourmet chef and Louise the perfect hostess. Together they ensure that their guests are warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. My family and I spent a wonderful week at Villa Poggio di Gaville last month and especially enjoyed each meal we had there. We are convinced Jamal makes the best croissants in the world that set your day off to great start and his 4 course dinners on the villa's terrace are a treat to be savoured. Jamal even went out of his way to make delicious vegetarian food for my wife although she was the only vegetarian guest at that time. All said and done we did find the dinner at €30 per head to be a tad expensive.
The Villa also has a nice swimming pool in a little valley surrounded by trees and feeding the wild horses that have made the property their home is a unique experience.
We'd love to go back to Villa Poggio di Gaville sometime.
