Un posto incantevole

  • 5 of 5

Ho passato un soggiorno incantevole con i miei amici. L'appartamento era molto bello e curato. Il giardino e bellissimo come la villa. Un ringraziamento a i proprietari e a Donatella per la loro gentilezza e disponibilità. È stata una delle vacanze più belle che abbia fatto e non vedo l'ora di tornare.

vacanze pasquali molto piacevoli

  • 5 of 5

Sono stato ospite qui per le vacanze pasquali con la mia famiglia e degli amici, eravamo due famiglie, ciascuna con 2 bambini. E' stato molto piacevole, gli appartamenti sono ben attrezzati, specialmente la cucina. Le camere sono comode. Avevamo un po' di paura per gli arredi antichi (con i bambini piccoli non si sa mai) ma e' andato tutto benissimo.

Soggiorno piacevole

  • 5 of 5

Sono stata diverse volte ospite della struttura, ed ogni volta ho trascorso del tempo molto piacevole. Quest'ultima volta per visitare la mostra sullo studiolo ad Urbino. Gli appartamenti sono spaziosi ed il parco privato e' perfetto per rilassarsi a leggere un libro.
