This was to be my wife's big 60th birthday celebration with our kids a husband and girlfriend respectively along with some dear friends, and it was! The directions from the airport were spot on and within 30 minutes of leaving the airport we were entering this magical property. The driveway leads you to his old stone farmhouse, completely renovated, situated on a hill overlooking a vast valley. There are olive trees, a lilly pond and red geraniums to greet you. The house was spotless when we arrived with a welcome basket.
The house is comfortable with a state of the art kitchen and modern tiled high end bathrooms. The kitchen is stocked with all the appliances and utensils you would need for a great meal. The caretakers were so pleasent and were alway avaliable whenever needed. One evening they setup the grill for one of our meals. The charcoal briquettes would have been fine but they added wood chips for some extra flavor. The chicken was fantastic.
The infiniti pool was situated with a perfect view of the valley.
The villa is walking distance into the town of Starda where we purchased fresh bread, cheese and fruit each morning. Morover there is wonderfull ltitle restaurant there where we had a great meal one evening.
My favorite moments were sipping coffee in the early morning while lookng out over the valley watching the early morning mists.
As our kids said this was their best vacation, I have to agree it was mine.
