What a wonderful, fantastic week we had in Chelan and at Villa Florenza! An amazing home you have built - wonderfully spacious, set up so people can have privacy in their own rooms or suites, with nice bathrooms to boot, yet when everyone gathers in the kitchen/great room/patio/pool, there is still ample room to enjoy the space and not feel on top of each other.
As a professional chef and restaurant owner, I was especially pleased with the kitchen and outdoor grill - incredible to have that sort of btu power in home appliances. Fantastic. Those nice tools, along with the huge island/prep area meant that I could be cooking breakfast or dinner, have lots of helpers, and lots of folks around chatting while I worked. I felt on vacation while working - perfect!
The best testament to the home was the fact that we all actually enjoyed being together all week. I'm an in-law, but even my wife, connected by blood, was very dubious of this week spent with her family. Instead, we had non-stop fun and such ease and comfort. And the pool is delicious, the deck/patio around it delightful, and the overall location and position in relation to the sun perfect.
Thanks so much for all the care and vision you put into Villa Florenza.
I look forward to an occasion that will bring me back to Villa Florenza soon. We loved it, loved the area, and often wondered why we should even leave the grounds. Fantastic. Thanks, Paolo. -John P.

Owner's Response: Buon Giorno John,
So glad you enjoyed the VF. It is a special place! We are very happy you appreciated the gourmet chef details we put into the home both inside and out. There's nothing like working the big grill with a glass of vino and looking out at the lake over the pool. It is as you so said, delicious!
We are looking forward to having you come back. The vineyard will be put in this fall so get ready for sipping vino amongst vines soon. Ciao and grazie!
