La Flora was an amazing place. It was so beautiful - perfect for our group of friends. There was a lot of common space, yet a lot of privacy if you needed some time to yourself. The villa itself had so much character and history, yet all the modern conveniences. Everything was very clean and new - the linens and towels were lovely and Julia (the cleaning lady) did a fabulous job for us. The pool was fantastic, and the grounds were beautiful. It was such a relaxing environment!! We loved the entire experience, from walking alongside the Aqueduct to exploring the neighborhood, to riding bikes into town for groceries. The guidebooks the owners offered were very helpful in terms of both local restaurants and the "how to" of appliances. Chef Morena came to the villa and taught us to cook a 5-course meal (including making fresh pasta!) and then served us a beautiful dinner - she was SO much fun and we had a great time. I will never forget our week at La Flora - it was absolutely perfect.
