We are back from our two weeks in Europe and have to say that our week at Villa Giunia was simply amazing. If the beautiful Villa were not enough itself, the hospitality and care provided by Vittoria, Patrizia and Anna made our week complete. We did end up adding another chef’s night dinner and every meal was exquisite. We also enjoyed the observatory, yoga instruction – and the vans for our winery tour were a perfect solution. Thank you so much for all of your guidance and assistance. We made good use of the pool which was perfect and clean every day. - Kim and Roger
