A note from Jo
This is the most beautiful property. From the moment you arrive you'll immediately feel like you're in the lap of luxury. A generous welcome basket awaits and the local property manager, Francesca, will be on hand should you need anything at all during your stay. The location is quite rural so we think this is the perfect villa if you're looking for long, lazy days by the pool knowing you have complete privacy.
