Fantastic family holiday

Our extended family have just returned from a fortnight's stay at Grotta delle Farfalle. We could not have chosen better; the location is perfect with lots of walks through vineyards and countryside but only a few minutes from the sea and with beautiful views of the mountains too. There are very interesting places to visit and a wide choice of restaurants within easy reach. There were lots of books and information leaflets for guidance about what the area has to offer, but we spent most of our time at the Villa itself which was ideal for us all to spend a really relaxing time together. Children were aged from 4 to 17 and all happy to be around the villa. The pool is excellent, large and with a shallow and deep end. Thought has been given to safety, as the whole villa is fenced in and has electric gates. In addition to the large terrace overlooking the pool and a large shaded barbecue area (which was very well equipped), there was the garden to the side and front. So although we were a large group it was possible for individuals to find some peace and quiet! The accommodation was equipped to a high standard; beds were comfortable, bedrooms were spacious, Everything was clean and immaculate throughout. "

You will not want to leave!

"The villa is in a truly outstanding location, offering a serene and relaxed environment to chill by the pool but we were able to walk to the sea. If this is not enough for you, there are sandy beaches, pebbled beaches, coves, National Parks all within a few minutes drive and beautiful mountains nearby.
The villa is equipped with everything you need for a self-catering holiday, is well laid out and will accommodate small or large groups and is small child friendly.
When it hot out, the villa is cool inside, so sleeping is comfortable even if you prefer fans to the air-con.
The huge patio areas has a lovely pool, outdoor eating area with amazing BBQ and pizza oven. We spend most evenings outside in the outdoor or veranda eating areas, it was absolute bliss. The only downside was that nobody wanted to leave and we will be returning again as soon as possible.

A wonderful place to stay.

“ We stayed here in July and had the most fantastic time. The villa is furnished to a high standard with everything you will need for a relaxing holiday. The pool and the amazing outside BBQ and pizza oven were a great combination for everyone spending the whole day outdoors. The villa is in a superb position surrounded by olive groves, with beautiful views of the mountains and of the sea. There are so many lovely beaches within a few minutes drive. We thoroughly recommend staying here.”

— Simone, Peter and Family
