Das Haus ist super für eine Gruppe von 6 Erwachsenen und sogar noch mehr Personen würden Platz finden. Das der Pool sauber und direkt vor dem Haus liegt ist ein Traum und auch falls mal mit Kleinkindern dort übernachtet wird, ist es ein großer Vorteil dass der Pool eingezäunt ist. Jedes Zimmer hat ein Bad und auch unten gibt es noch ein WC, extrem gut für drei Paare! Die Besitzer sind sehr aufmerksam und freundlich, jederzeit auch erreichbar. Es sollte nur erwähnt werden, dass der Strand zwar nur 15 KM entfernt liegt, jedoch durch die kurvenreiche Strecke man 30 Minuten einkalkulieren sollte. Wir waren überrascht das wir so weit oben lagen mit dem Haus. Dennoch haben wir uns einfach extrem wohlgefühlt und direkt weiterempfohlen!
Local attractions Direkt in der Nachbarschaft bisschen weiter Bergauf erreicht man zu Fuss innerhalb von 5 Minuten ein Restaurant welches sehr gute Pizza macht und auch das Fleisch super schmeckt. Es hat nur wenige Stunden am Tag auf und Pizza gibt es nicht jeden Tag, aber es ist so richtig schön gemütlich und gut. In Carducci gibt es ein weiteres gutes Restaurant welches man nicht direkt von der Strasse aus sehen kann. Fast Ortsausgang muss man durch einen kleinen Torbogen auf der rechten Seite fahren. Dahinter befinden sich 2 Restaurants - eines mehr Pizzeria und das andere etwas "schicker" aber von beiden ist der Ausblick ein Traum! Unbeding Franco Batzella besuchen! er und seine Frau machen eine sehr einfache aber richtige tolle Weinführung und auch beim Weintrauben lesen darf man helfen wenn man mag. Die Verkostung der Weine macht sehr viel Spaß, da die beiden es mit ganz viel Liebe einfach machen! 15 EUR pro Person um am Ende 6 sehr gute Weine testen zu können, ein Schnäppchen für den tollen Tag!
