It is now september and we are still in "Il Giardino State of Mind".
Loved the welcome from Laura "relax" and so we did!
We chose the place because of the views. We were not disappointed ... Loved waking up to the morning view of the olive fields!
We LOVE ... LOVE the place, the view the atmosphere, our dog became friends with Kiko. But most of ALL WE LOVE THE PEOPLE that made sure we had a GREAT TIME!
