I had the good luck to stay with Jean-Francois back in July, after a month of travelling. He is a most charming host and very eager to please his guests.

Donamaria is a classic old building that grabs your attention the minute you enter it and you can choose from a whole library of books if you are so inclined and settle on the couch ....or you can go outside and enjoy the charming garden and swimmingpool.
