We could not have been more fortunate in selecting Villa Maria as the facility for our home during our Italy retreat.
Where do you begin in describing how great a location and facility Villa Maria offered to our group of twelve. The entire Villa was beautiful, clean, comfortable and accomodating for all of us.
When you look at the pictures of Villa Maria, what you can't see are the sounds and views of the sunrise and sunsets over the valley and adjacent mountain range. The Villa is so accomodating for relaxing inside in the living room, outside at the covered patio table or down by the pool.
The Villa was always comfortably cool, like being airconditioned, even though it was not airconditioned.
The Villa enticed one into complete relaxation. Given our limited time in Italy, we seemed to always be on the go, however, when we arrived back at the Villa we were ready to relax and enjoy the accomodations.
We had Donato cook three different evenings and the meals were always excellent. We ate out at several restaurants in the area that were all excellent. I wonder when you are in such a great location, can you really find anything not perfect?
Marco and Serena were very accomodating and great to deal with. Marco went out of his way to provide recommendations regarding dining out and suggestions regarding the surrounding area. Many thanks to Marco and Serena for making this great estate available for our vacation.
The initial directions to Villa Maria created some challenge in finding Villa Maria, however, once we became acquainted with the area, getting to surrounding towns by car or train was convenient. Driving at night was not so bad because you had the headlights that let one see the oncoming traffic or close roadside walls. Once we were accustomed to the tight driving roads of Italy, driving became more of an adventure.
