We had a lovely 4 days in beautiful Praino where we enjoyed wandering the picturesque streets, eating well, swimming at the beaches and of course relaxing at the wonderful Villa Erato. The house is just lovely with amazing views from balconies and a gorgeous terrace. Roberto was a welcoming host with good suggestions for the local restaurant. Thank you Roberto for a fabulous stay at Villa Erato. We will be back!
