Review date:
Stay: July 2014
Pros Very VERY nice villa from inside. Two families (2+3 & 2+2) fitted without any problems. Plenty of showers, toilets, closets, kitchen ware...superb pool, great garden for the kids, room to play football etc.
Cons Nights were cold so then the bed rooms were also extremely cold. At the coldest we measured only 17c in the bed room. Fortunately we found extra blankets but still it was chilly. Another (although small) disappointment was the lack of tv as it was the world cup time.
Local attractions We ate at the local restaurants plus once in Scarperia which offer a lot of choice
