First of all - I was very surprised by the intensity of communication with Paolo - the owner. Few minutes after doing the reservation over booking.com, I received e-mail with a greeting and instructions - much appreciated. Paolo was really very nice host, welcomed us with a bottle of wine and helped us with several bookings and track itineraries. The location is very isolated (about 5km gravel road drive), so you can enjoy the countryside without any disturbing elements. Stunning sunsets, lovely pool area...simply perfect. The only thing we did not like so much was the double-bed. It had seen better times and it was too soft and VERY squeaky for a comfortable sleep. Apart from that - superb and well recommended!
