We-a group of "Golden Oldies"- hire the villa and then club together and produce our own table settings and menus. The chefs in our group all get a chance to out-compete each other in a very grand and well equipped kitchen. So far we have done a Christmas in Winter, a celebration of Italian cooking and a South African weekend. The atmosphere and the setting are stunning. The main bedroom is to die for and to make the allocation fair, we sell raffle tickets. The income helps cover incidental costs. The venue is perfect as we all stay over and no need to stay sober.
A Grand Old Lady perfect for Golden Oldies to have good old fashioned fun!
