Ce sont mes plus belles vacances ! La villa est magnifique, une piscine de rêve, la propriété est très grande et vraiment superbe ! Sans parler d'Antonella (la propriétaire), une femme charmante, excessivement gentille, drôle, souriante, dévouée, un coeur énorme,... l'une de mes plus belles rencontre !
