From start to finish this was a fantastic experience. We felt we got to know Tony well as all his correspondence was friendly, helpful and always welcome. The house itself is amazing. The photographs are great online but don't do justice to the house, grounds and views. Everything you could need was provided and very quickly we felt at home. We were two families of four and the house was easily big enough to accommodate us without feeling like we were stepping on toes. The bedrooms are spacious and airy and the air con works a treat. Star of the show was the pool and garden. We used it every day and the kids were always reluctant to get out but the lure of food always helped. And the food was amazing! Recommendations from Tony and Lynne were always great and although it took us a few days to get used to having some of our meals chosen for us by the chef in the absence of menus, we had meals that were exactly how we expected - fresh, delicious and lovingly created. Tony and Lynne apologise for the length of the info supplied but it was extremely helpful for everything from local contacts to bin collections! There has obviously been a great deal of investment and care put into the house and it's maintenance. All in, we would heartily recommend this villa and would love to return (as soon as we can). This is a taste of real Italy and although it's a short drive to towns, the coast and the mountains you still feel as if you're the only tourists around! And that's not a bad thing ! The people were all really friendly and helpful and local prices are really cheap, especially compared to Rome! Our top tip - get a good phrasebook and use as much Italian as you can - it really helps!
Thanks Tony and Lynne!
