We had a wonderful stay in Cristina’s villa and the surroundings were breathtaking. The villa was built in the 13th C. but has been beautifully restored while preserving a totally traditional feel. We were sorry to leave and would love to return. The only addition comments I will add were that travelers should be prepared to provide their own soap, dish soap, etc. There was next to nothing in the house and even the toilet paper ran out. I guess that with these types of rentals it is hit or miss - some owners provide these things and some don’t. Also - for those who wonder about laundry - there is a washer and dryer but the dryer is not for renters. We didn’t realize that in advance. The property is truly spectacular and Cristina, her brother, and her mother were absolutely lovely. We would go back in a heartbeat!
We loved the villa and setting of this very unique property. The villa itself is so interesting with comfortable rooms, a nice kitchen and interesting grounds to explore. The views are breathtaking! The fragrant smells of flowers on the terrace and sounds of birds in the morning was a wonderful start to each day’s adventure. Our host, Gil, was exceptionally welcoming and informative. We hope to visit again one day soon!
