“The ideal break to get away from it all” I don't normally write reviews but this was such a great break I thought it deserved the effort as it was such a treat!
To set the scene, if you're looking to get away from it all and take time to relax in a tranquil environment, this holiday is for you. We stayed in the Olive house at Casa Vialba. It's set in the middle of the the Italian countryside with nothing around to distract you - just the sound of the swimming pool water and not a lot else. Absolute paradise when you need a break from the stress.
When we arrived we found everyone working there really helpful and extremely friendly. They're are English owners who've lived it Italy many years so spoken English and Italian is fluent, We found them very discrete so you got everything you needed but they were in no way intrusive, so it felt that you had the place to yourself. The kitchen in the villa was fully stocked as if it was your own house, with everything from English Tea to good Italian wine. A large beautiful dining room and lounge with 2 large well furnished bedrooms. There was also an open fire there so I guess it's also equipped form winter breaks? The Olive House where we stayed is a restored old Italian stone house with all the luxuries you'd want, from a jacuzzi on both floors to sky TV (like you really want to stay in and watch TV!... actually I did once ;-) ). We went with our 3 daughters, aged between 2 and 7 years old. For them it was child heaven from the swimming pools to looking at and petting the horses that are at Casa Vialba.
I guess to sum up we had one of the best holiday's of our lives. If you're a celeb needing privacy, or a high flyer needing to get away from it all, or if you're Mr & Mrs Ordinary just looking for a luxury holiday in the most beautiful of Italian settings - this holiday is for you!!
“Absolute Perfection” We had a wonderful stay at Casa delle Grazie. We stayed in La Torretta with our young son and the accommodation could not have been better. Well equipped, including children's toys, high chairs etc. Really great beds and bathroom!
The location is fantastic, close to the beautiful and unspoilt village of Montone. Our host Aine was really helpful in the lead up to our arrival and ensured that our stay was relaxed and comfortable.
