The Villa Daniela was absolutely beautiful. The owner, Daniele, lives on site and she is lovely and has great pride in her home, and it shows. She thought of every little thing: like the shower and toilet out by the pool so one does not have to walk back to the house. The house is spectacular -the walls and ceilings are all hand painted, the furniture is gorgeous, the linens and beds are top of the line, and everything is immaculate. The people on staff are wonderful and helpful and personable and just plain nice. The location is perfect - close enough to a few shops and an easy drive to so many fun day trips. Breakfast was an event each day and the dinners (we hired the chef for a couple of nights) were works of art. We had access to everything we could possibly want. The house looks formal in the pictures but in reality it is extremely comfortable. There are not enough positive adjectives to describe it all. We had a a fabulous time! - Penny P.

Our experience was way beyond expectations. Villa Daniella was far more beautiful than in pictures. The villa offered every amenities that we could have needed and the staff was nothing but pleasant and helpful. Margherita and Daria were very professional and provided excellent service. My guests and I could not be more pleased with our visit and are sad that we are not still there! - The D. Family
We could not have had a better time than we did at Villa Daniela. Everything was absolutely first class from the beautiful rooms and grounds at the Villa to the incredibly wonderful people that we met (Sandra and her staff) and became immediate friends with. The entire experience was even better than we could have hoped for. The whole week was a truly unforgettable experience. And thanks to you for your great assistance as well. - Ray
The Villa was AMAZING and Daniela and her staff exceeded our expectations. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a lovely breakfast and Prosecco which was so appreciated and not expected. The Welcome dinner that evening was incredible since the food kept coming. Andre and his team did a fabulous job. All our friends agree this was the best vacation so far and God willing, we would love to return one day.
Thanks so much for all the arrangements you provided and on a scale of 1-10, you get a 10+ !! - Judy
My family (all 23!!) planned to stay here we’ll more than a year ago. We had a perfect family reunion and Daniela could not have been a better host. Though she lives on the property, she was unobtrusive except when we needed her. The meals she organized for us were superb and her staff were friendly & helpful. Her husband even made a temporary fix on the bumper of our vehicle! Outstanding hospitality. It made for a holiday week for our family that will be fondly remembered for our lifetimes! Strongly recommend this villa! - S. Whitley
