    We are interested in booking a Villa to sleep 4 adults, ourselves and daughter 26 and son 24. We would like a 3- 4 BR preferably with en suite. We will require reliable WIFI, a pool and Aircon. Our dates are 1/08-15/08. Some in the party might have to work during this period so WIFI is really critical

    I have started looking on the website and both Villa Alberta and Villa San Michele look very interesting to us. We would like to be close enough to key day trek locations since we like a bit of adventure along with our relaxation. We would like a town or two to visit on some evenings and historical sites by day since we are staying for 2 weeks.

    As we have not traveled in this area before, which other villas that are free on our dates might we consider? I would love to have a conversation with someone on your staff. Please email me with a telephone contact number.

    We are Americans who have been living in London for 2+ years. My husband did ask what is the nearest hospital or medical centre since we have all grown keenly aware of medical care in the COVID environment though we are all totally healthy. Is August a reliable date to book for?
