This was a fabulous holiday. The property and immediate surroundings are as beautiful, if not more so, than the photographs on the web-site suggest. The views from bedroom (and bathroom!) were breath-taking, especially when the mist blanketed Mercatele in the early morning and we were high on the hill in the sun-shine. Clean and beautifully furnished. Andrea, the owner of the accommodation was a great and kindly host - could not have done more for us. Step outside and you can swim in the pool or walk in the wooded mountains. Hop in the car and you can lose yourselves in breath-taking countryside and atop more glorious medieval hill-top towns than you can throw a stick at! Am back home, sat at my computer working (well trying not to, actually) and already I miss the people, accommodation, weather, wine, food, history, culture, countryside and the local shop-keeper carving proscuttio, waver by waver, with all the time, and not a care, in the world. If you book this accommodation and we can't get back in, we will be very cross!
