Ruhe, Lage, Kastanienwald, Ausstattung der Räume und vor allem auch der Küche, großes ebenes Grundstück für Kinder zum Spielen und Toben geeignet
Kleinigkeiten: WLan ging nur sehr eingeschränkt (angeblich aufgrund Lage), Beschreibung des Anfahrtsweges verbesserungsfähig, die das Anwesen betreuenden Personen (Gärtner, Poolwartung) kamen immer unangemeldet, dies sollte man von Beginn an absprechen

It's a beautiful villa, and a family home.
Clearly the owner has great taste, the books shelves were packed with many good English books, and the well appointed kitchen had everything.
The 4 en-suite bedrooms worked perfectly for our party of 8 adults.
The isolation and the well tended gardens and pool area were perfect for a quite relaxing holiday.
The loaction agent "Rosado" was a star. He took us to the Villa and spent quite sometime with us explaining how it all worked. He gave us his mobile number and was always available.
The only downside to this villa was the 2.7km drive from Ripoli up through the forested area to the villa on an unprepared very narrow track.
