Riccardo is an excellent host. He and his family made us feel very welcome upon arrival. He also enthusiastically gave us some advice on how to best enjoy the region, which proved to be very helpful. The Villa itself is beautiful. It is carefully positioned in a North West facing hill giving beautiful views of the surrounding country. It benefits from natural shade from surrounding trees and remains cool when it is very hot outside. The connection with the exterior is provided through a central living room which provides access to a large covered balcony which stretches across the entire front of the house. During the day you will always find sun and shade on the balcony. There is also a lovely garden with chairs and sun loungers. The garden is very private. Only the church bells remind you that others may be close by. We would happily return to this beautiful well appointed property, which was perfectly clean and luxuriously furnished. We are thankful to have found such a lovely place.
