Alina & Lucia the Mother-Daughter owners provide such love & unparalleled exceptional service you will leave feeling well Rested, Relaxed and Happy!! I also attended their Country Slow Living cooking class where we cooked and ate several courses and sipped on wine all while laughing and learning so much about food, olive oil, wines, etc. I also met other guests at the villas all who were extremely warm, friendly and full of love.
