“Lovely house, great people; fantastic holidays”

We chose Villa Fradama because we neeeded the space; it's so much nicer than expected. A section of the house dates from the XVI century (with a moat, thick walls with slits for shooters, a granary at the basement, etc); will all these the house has been refurbished recently with everything you'd expect (dishwasher, air conditioning).
Our 2 year old daughter loved the garden and the rural land that surrounds the house -actually, they grow oranges and olives there, so she harvested as many oranges as she wanted.
The owners (Mario and Liliana) and the people who work there (Franco and Maria) deserve a special chapter: they were incredibly generous to us; from advising on excursions to goat's milk and home made sweets.
Yes, we became fans of Villa Fradama and we recommend it wholeheartedly.

“Brilliant House that is quirky, comfortable and a treat”
Reviewed 24 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

There were 8 of us ranging from 8 years old to 73 and we stayed over Easter. The owner, Mario, and his sister could not have been more welcoming. They contacted me before we arrived to arrange for the kitchen to be stocked as the shops were closed over Easter. The house has wonderful tall ceilings and every evening the next door farmer came in to light a huge fire. It is not a villa - but it is a historic farmhouse full of interesting pieces of furniture and pictures. The local village is not great, but within 10 minutes drive you are in in the countryside or a busy local town. For a genuine experience of Italy you could not do better.
