Ipswich Family (with only pre-school children)
- We've just got back from an amazing week here. If you love nature and being in the middle of nowhere then this place is perfect. We saw an Abundance of wildlife, snakes, wild boar, deer and there were so many lizards in the grounds. Every evening the geckos would come out and keep us company, George, Gertrude, Geoffrey, Grant, Grace and Graham (our 2 year old named them) were regulars. The pool was a little cold at the start of the week but as the temperatures increased so did the pool (thankfully) and we spent a lot of time in and around it. The inside of the villa was adequate with 2 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. But it was the outside area that was our favourite part. 3 seating areas to take advantage of we'd move around depending on the time of day. The grounds are a little scorched and DO NOT walk on the grass with bare feet as there are little prickly things that stick in your feet, our son found out the hard way. Luckily mummy had tweezers on hand!! The nearest shop we found was a coop in castagneto carducci about 20 minutes away. There's so much to see and do it really was an amazing holiday. The villa is about a mile down a dirt track, some of which is tarmacked but some is just rubble and a bit hard going on the poor hire cars! Balconaio is the last one so very private. Directions were spot on and the welcome pack was the best we've ever had. Would go back in a heart beat.
