Piękne miejsce, gdzie zupełnie nie czuje się upału panującego na odległym o 16 km wybrzeżu. Ładna i w pełni wyposażona willa. Szczególnie urzekły nas stojące przy każdym apartamencie altany, gdzie można miło spędzać czas przy posiłkach i spotkaniach towarzyskich. Wielką zaletą pobytu w willi La Quercia jest możliwość korzystania z prywatnego ogrodu botanicznego i przyległej do niego plaży w miejscowości Marina di Carducci.
