We all enjoyed the beauty of the villa, its quiteness of the countryside the outdoor eating areas .....
just wanted to let you know that our family Holiday at Villa Corte Capitani was great. The house is something very special, it has a lot of atmosphere and we really loved it! Pool and garden were also wonderful with an amazing view over the lake.
And also the owner was very hospitable and we felt all around good and welcome and perfectly looked after!
Have a good day!
We rented Villa Costanza for two weeks for a 60th birthday celebration for my husband.
We were joined by 18 close family and friends and honestly had the holiday of a lifetime.
The villa is absolutely beautiful and very well maintained, the photographs on the rental sites do not do it justice . The views and dramatic cliffs surrounding the villa are stunning. The owner, her Mum and staff looked after us all superbly, each morning a lovely breakfast was ready for us at a time we had specified with a good choice of options, evening meal was also prepared each night, food was delicious and plentiful.
We requested a pizza party twice, it was fantastic, everyone had the opportunity to create their own delicious pizza cooked in the pizza oven.
Six days per week every inch of the villa was cleaned by the staff, it was spotless.
The owner arranged a private boat hire with a skipper for us twice, first trip we went to Capri and 2nd trip to Positano and Amalfi, the skipper was great, very knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble, wherever we wanted to go he took us, and no pressure to return home. It was very reasonable considering 15 people went on both trips and had an amazing time. Although very hilly, the walk from the villa to Marina del Cantone is about 15 minutes and all downhill so no problem, coming back up is more difficult as it is quiet steep however doable with a reasonable level of fitness. Once you have worked out the timetables for the bus it is great as you can time the buses going down or coming back up the hill, and the bus is directly outside the gate of the Villa. The bus takes approx. 45 mins to Sorrento and you can get ferry's to Capri, Positano, Amalfi. We have had holidays in private villas for past 34 years and can honestly say this was the best ever, I have to pinch myself to believe I was lucky enough to find it on the mine field of villa rental sites.
We had such a wonderful time in Positano. Villa La Pistrice is the perfect place to stay because of its location.
The villa is located next to the bus stop...we would walk down to the beach and shopping area and take the bus back. There is also a wonderful little restaurant situated at the entrance to the villa.
The Villa itself is beautiful. Gorgeous views from the terraces. Courtyard is peaceful and there are tables outside if you decide to dine in. Bedrooms are nice and spacious and the kitchen is fully equipped. I hope to return some day!
Thank you also for being there and answering any questions I had. You made it easy for me to put this trip together. We all had a wonderful time!
Rosa dei Venti, à usage totalement intime et privé est le havre de quiétude et de paix idéal.
Durant la première quinzaine de septembre, le panorama époustouflant qui s’apprécie interminablement dans le silence et l’intimité de la terrasse, nous a permis de digérer chaque soir les plaisirs, les beautés et les inévitables affres que procure l’enivrant, voire, l’éreintant tourbillon amalfitain...
Pour se faire servir un dernier cocktail (bien tassé... !) au cœur de Praiano, après une journée des plus éprouvantes, la terrasse du Bar del Sole vous accueillera dans une ambiance sereine et intime qui s’offrira à vous après une distrayante dégringolade d’escaliers et une enfilade de venelles étroites et privées, aussi élégantes que mystérieuses, que l’on emprunte par une petite porte dérobée (dont on a la clef...) directement à partir de la terrasse de la maison.
Heureusement, la remontée s’effectue sans difficulté, dans une ambiance locale et folklorique à l’aide du petit autobus communal qui circule toute la nuit.
Les moins aventuriers pourront se satisfaire des transats et du barbecue placés sur une seconde terrasse (panoramique...) en partie naturellement ombragée, embaumée d’ effluves de thym, basilic, coriandre etc... plantés dans le jardin et divers pots abandonnés ci et là...
Rosa dei Venti qui se situe idéalement entre Positano et Amalfi est parfaitement fonctionnelle, bien agencée et décorée. S’y mijoter une sauce tomate maison avec les présents de la propriétaire (issus du jardin....) procure une satisfaction et un plaisir gustatif inoubliables !!!
Très appréciables, les places de parking gratuit à 5 mn de marche (à plat...) de la maison.
On ne peut clore sans évoquer la sympathie, la gentillesse, les attentions et l’efficacité de la maîtresse de maison, qui vit dans une propriété voisine totalement séparée de Rosa dei Venti.
Avec une irréprochable discrétion, Carolina qui se montre en permanence disponible, vous apportera volontiers son assistance pour vous aider à solutionner tous vos petits problèmes, voire, de plus gros...
Nous la remercions pour nous avoir fait profiter de sa maison et pour tout ce qu’elle nous a personnellement apporté…''

The villa is in a secluded location with two unspoiled towns within a few kilometres. The accommodation is very generously proportioned and you have everything you need in the family house. For recreation there is a beautiful pool and terrace. If you need to get out of the sun, there is table tennis and football and inside a pool table. The mature gardens and shaded terraces offer you places to eat and relax in the shade. We had a great holiday and appreciated the help and advice the owners gave.
There is much to see in the area – Viterbo, Lake Bolsena, Orvieto, Bagnoregio / Civita and many more. All have the architecture and history of the better known sights of Tuscany and Umbria but without the crowds and commercialisation. If you have not tried the Lazio region, this is an ideal villa to explore from (David)
There were many good things about Villa Marika.
First, the view from the terrace is indeed spectacular: one of the best I can remember. We much enjoyed breakfast on the terrace. The location is excellent, close to the cable-car and mini-markets. The key holder could not have been more charming and welcoming.
The flat has its charms – spacious and air-conditioned (and its convenient location) The plumbing and showers were first-rate and constant hot water much appreciated. And I repeat, the key-holder lady was always warm and helpful..
We all had such an amazing time this week. We don't want to leave! Thanks for all the great help and recommendations.
The beaches, the boat, the cooking class…. so many great times! We'll be back!

Nous avons passé une très agréable séjour à la Villa Arizza.
La maison est trés agréable à vivre avec sa piscine au milieu de la nature. Elle est aussi très bien située et permet de visiter toute la Sicile du Sud (Ragusa, Noto, Syracuse...) aussi que de profiter de très jolies plages de sable fin, comme celle de Sampieri.
Nous avons aussi été très bien accueillis par le propriétaire qui sait nous faire partager l'amour de son pays.
Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir.
Un grande merci à vous

We wanted to thank you very much for all your help in organising our visit to Sermide. We had a truly excellent time in a beautiful house with charming people in the village.
We would always be happy to recommend Ville in Italia to anyone who asks about our source of accommodation.
Once again many thanks - we would certainly hope to use your company again.

I am happy to describe my experience with Ville in Italia and my stay at Casale Ottavia! In fact I made a strong recommendation on my personal Facebook page and included a link to
Ville in Italia, so that my friends would be able to use the information if they chose travel in Italy.
Our first experience with Ville in Italia came in 2002 when we rented a beautiful villa on the Amalfi Coast near Positano. We had such a wonderful and positive experience then, that I sought out Ville in Italia when we planned this most recent trip to Italy, this time with our children. The entire experience was again very, very positive. From the start, Massimiliano was very helpful in advising me about which properties might be best for a stay for 5 people, with our 3 children are aged 18, 19, 21 years old. He also provided me with very specific and helpful directions on getting to the villa from Firenze and was able to answer all of my questions regarding car and train travel. The villa was very well-appointed, with everything we would need for a week-long stay in Tuscany. The garden and pool were lovely and clean and the contact person was very warm and welcoming and was easily reached for questions or advice. The house itself was so lovely—like a Tuscan dream. We were able to take day trips to Firenze, Lucca, Siena, Pisa and the coast and then come home and relax in luxury. We loved everything about
this trip and our stay at Casale Ottavia. Thank you for making this experience one that we will remember for a lifetime.
Thank you very much for the very warm welcome, the food and additional things that were provided in the house for our arrival.
We had a marveillous stay in the villa and enjoyed the house as well as all our visits through beautiful Sicily.
We wish you all the best, and who knows, maybe we'll meet again.

We enjoyed our stay, Villa was in good shape and order / nice location; would definitely recommend it.
The senora/ lady keeping the house was very supportive and warm-hearted (she even brought us a self-made cake).

Thanks for your email! Regarding our holiday in Villa di Rosano, everything was perfect!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in July. As we were not able to stay the full week it was good that you were flexible and offered a reduced rate for our 6 night stay. From my first enquiry right through to booking and payments, it all went smoothly and I was confident that you would assist if anything untoward happened.
The accommodation was lovely and I would have no hesitation booking with you again and would be happy to recommend you to others.
