We had a glitch in our travel arrangements and couldn't get to the villa at the arranged time. Our keyholder, Ilaria, took the trouble to arrive at a new time to suit us which was great. In fact she went out of her way to make our stay easy and comfortable. We should have booked for another week! Next time we will.
Local attractions Nearby restaurant, Il Pestello, was excellent - tasty food, good value and the staff came out to our car with umbrellas to shelter us from a downpour (the only rain we saw all holiday!) Brilliant.
