Location was great. We were able to take all our day trips from the location of our villa. Outdoor pool area had a beautiful view. Villa did not have great views. There was an office on sight that was very helpful in securing restaurant reservations, giving is driving directions, or recommendations for our travels.
The view from the pool was breathtaking and the office on the property was very helpful. Location was also good for what we wanted to do while in Italy.
Scenery was beautiful. Easy to get to major highway.
