As a large family (four adult siblings with partners and parents) this was a fantastic home for us! The living situation is both together and separate. There’s one big but cosy family room with a long table for dinners and a great fireplace. This kitchen is fitted out with enough cooking pots and pans, platters and a dishwasher. Then, there are 3 other smaller kitchens linked to the various other ‘apartments in the rooms’ - so when you need a bit of peace and quiet you can definitely get some! All the rooms have been decorated in a charming rustic way, it seems well put together and aesthetically enjoyable but know that it is an old Italian style and not new and fancy. The swimming pool area is very beautiful and tranquil and the host (who does not speak much English and is no Italian) was a kind and charming person. The villa is really well located with a view of the valley and within a nice 30-40 minute walk into town (3.3km), but the hill is steep so be prepared! I can thoroughly recommend Villa Fonte all’Oppio as a wonderful holiday spot!
