The peacefulness and the pool! We also appreciated the bread and wine left for our arrival and having some basic supplies on hand like toilet paper, oil and spices.
It needs more window screens. Some nights were warm and we would have liked to have more than one window open. We also struggled with the gas range; it was hard to light the oven - no English instructions for the symbols, the dishwasher and washer same issue - need English instructions. We had problems with ants in the kitchen.
I can't imagine how anyone could walk to Proceno; this was on one of the reviews - it was so hilly that we drove instead. We loved the small hill towns.
Tips or Restaurants:
I would advise they ask for groceries to be purchased for them as the markets in Proceno are very limited and it was very hard to find open supermarkets on Saturday. The market that was open was also low on many items and it wasn't until Monday that we could really do any serious shopping.
We appreciated the keyholder being prompt.
This home was absolutely gorgeous. We loved everything about it. Our group of 6 fit perfectly in the villa. We had plenty of room for privacy and still felt the coziness of traveling together. The attention to detail in the restoration was uncanny. The woodwork, tile, cleanliness and overall appearance made us feel like we were "true Italians." The explanations given about the home were right on.
We loved everything!!! The only thing that the owners could do is to give better instructions on how to use the washer-dryer. The machines had Dutch writing on them and it took us several guesses to operate. The dryers were especially tricky. Not a huge deal. We ended up using the clothes line!
The home sits on its own secluded acreage. The views were breathtaking. Very private, but Proceno is a couple of minutes away. Landscaping around the house was beautiful. Herb garden for your taking. Property was well maintained.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Proceno. Would have been a good 30 minute walk. We loved the village. Everyone there knew us when we left. Wonderful market - "Roberto's". Many quaint streets to stroll down. There is even a castle and 7 churches.
Tips or Restaurants:
We ended up falling in love with one of the restaurants in town. Not only the restaurant but the family who owns it as well. They own the ice cream shop downstairs - where you can get cafes and croissants in the morning. Il Giardinetto is only 8 months old. Very chic in decorations. Food was CHEAP and delicious. We almost felt guilty when the bill would come. Cinzia, the manager, was fantastic. She spoke English and helped us with many of our day trips and directions.
