My family has rented five different villas in Italy. This was the best appointed villa and the most accommodating place that we stayed in. There were wonderful central places for people to eat, share stories and have fun and there are also lovely apart places when you want to be away from the group and have a few moments of solitude... Our experience there surpassed all of our expectations."
