Guest Comments   (52)
We've met some wonderful people since opening Hunters Lodge to summer guests and we hope there will be still many more in the coming years .  We ask our guests at the end of their holiday if there is anything they think we could have done to improve their stay at the Lodge and we have taken all of their comments on board to make things even better for guests following.  Our reward comes in knowing that our guests have a wonderful and relaxing time here so we are listening and doing everything to get it right.
There are no guest comments after 2020. Hoping to remain on trend and respectful of our guests we have done away with the 'Guest Comments' book.  You will still find comments from guests who have booked through the VRBO booking agent and you can find our listing on  Property Name:  Hunters Lodge, Property Ref: 10828618.

Here are some of the guests' comments we have received so far:

       Lovely week in Le Marche

        Hunters Lodge is a beautiful property and the most well equipped vacation home we've stayed in.  The exterior              reflects the locality, blending in with the countryside but the interior is modern with every convenience and luxury
        you could desire.  One of the reasons I chose the property is the location and the ability to isolate during these
        difficult times.  We had our own private space with a swimming pool and several outdoor areas to dine and hang
        out in. The wonderful hosts live on the property and are there if you need them but otherwise give you privacy.  I
        didn't want to leave and hope to return.

       A Wonderful Escape

       This lodge is a wonderful escape.  Lynne and Ken are very attentive hosts, and had obviously thought of lots
        of little things to make us feel at home and comfortable.  We had a completely relaxing stay and wanted for
        nothing.  The surrounding area is lovely, and little Gualdo is a gem.  We surely hope to return.

       Lovely Getaway

        We had such a lovely time at the villa.  A perfect location for a lazy getaway for 2.

        We had a wonderful week staying in this property Lynne and Ken were absolutely lovely and couldn't have
        done more to make us feel at home and on holiday!  The area is absolutely beautiful, the house is gorgeous and
        has everything you could possibly want.  I couldn't recommend this more if you want a peaceful and relaxing break
        in a beautiful location with brilliant hosts.

  • Everything we hoped for and more - totally exceeded our expectations and has set the bar very, very high for future bookings.  Lynne and Ken should give lessons on how to do luxury holiday accommodation.  We were so well looked after yet left in total privacy to enjoy a beautiful, peaceful and exceptionally well appointed accommodation.  The surrounding area is. stunning with beautiful rolling hills and unspoilt farmland, quaint villages and lovely food - but you may not want to leave the property!  Our first few days were very hot so the private pool and shady relaxing areas were very welcome.  Highly, highly recommended.                                  Clare I,  England, July 2019                                                                                            5 Star rated Ownersdirect
  • We knew the Lodge would be wonderful from the website and info but it exceeded our expectations ten fold.  The Lodge has been the most perfect place to rest and relax and just get away from everything.  We didn't explore too far as being at the Lodge was enough for us.  Lynne and Ken a huge thank you for our week, the Lodge is absolutely beautiful.  We are coming back next year for sure!  All I have to do now is to get over my post holiday blues.  Without doubt the most comfortable and well thought out holiday home we have ever been to.  For all the well thought out 'touches' we feel privileged to be here.  Many thanks to Lynne and Ken.                                   Karen and Mark Tacey, England, July 2019
  • Dear Lynne and Ken, Many thanks for another (6th) ideal holiday.  Successfully recharged the batteries ready for Monday.  Love Keith and Sally  (see you next year).                                                                                       England, June 2019
  • Once again the most peaceful and relaxing week in the perfect setting.  Everything you needed and more was provided by our wonderful hosts, Lynne and Ken.  Thank you for allowing us to recharge our batteries, once again at Hunters Lodge.......... we loved it!                                                                                                                         Jim and Kate Barron, England, June 2019
  • Barbara and I have made quite a few trips to Italy over the past 10 years.  This is our first stay in Umbria (Le Marche).  I was amazed that Lynne and Ken would name their beautiful villa after me - HUNTER's Lodge.  Though as I read past guests comments it seems to be a name that came to mind  years before.  We stayed 9 nights and we were thankful each day and night to have found the Best Lodge in Italy.  We wanted for nothing and can truly proclaim the claims for Hunters Lodge were completely true and justified.  If you want absolute peace relaxing around the pool or more active daytrips to Assissi, Perugia, Ancona or Ascoli Piceno, Hunters Lodge is ideally located and a joy to 'come home' to.  Lynne and Ken were the ideal hosts who helped us make the most of our stay and we look forward to calling them our friends - especially next year.   David and Barbara HUNTER, England, May 2019
  • A week of total relaxation and peace.  There is nothing to say that hasn't already been said. A little bit of Paradise, we love it here.  We always have, we always will.
    Pam and Ian, England, September 2018
  • Thank you Lynne and Ken.  It doesn't make sense to repeat (parts of) everything that's already been said and / or written down both by others and ourselves.  Not to mention that words aren't sufficient at all; it has just been wonderful to stay here once again.  Above all, it was great to meet you again.  Though not living close by we consider you as close friends.  We'll take little Floris with us as a living memory to you, our holiday and this lovely country.  We'll stay in touch.  Already looking forward to returning next year.                                          Love always Machteld and Jan, Netherlands, August, 2018  (Little Floris was a rescue kitten, found by Machteld in one of the ruined farmhouses.  Once found it never left her side.) 

  • Having recently returned from the idyllic location of Hunters Lodge, we have only the highest praise for Lynne and Ken for their dedicated presentation of both the interior and exterior of their beautiful property. If you are looking for a secluded hide-away where daily chores have already been spirited away before you rise then look no further. Help or advice is always on hand if needed, otherwise you will seldom see your hosts as the by-word here is 'Silence is golden' and your privacy is totally respected. We have had the most wonderful two month's stay here enjoying the peace and tranquility by the pool when it was hot; visiting the awesome Sibillini Mountain Range which is so close to here; or discovering a different restaurant each evening to delight in the magnificent locally offered produce. Come and indulge yourself in a touch of luxury, we can highly recommend it and a huge thank you to Lynne and Ken for making our stay so memorable.

  • We had the most amazing stay and Hunters Lodge was everything (and more) depicted on the website.  An awesome setting that is so peaceful, we went from stressed to relaxed in a matter of hours .....!  Thank you Ken and Lynne for a fantastic stay and see you next year.                                                                                               Jim and Kate, England, May 2018

  • Thank you very much for a most delightful stay in your beautiful apartment equipped with everything one could wish for. We had perfect weather and we were able to dine and relax both inside and out as well as take advantage of the surrounding area.  Thank you so much.
    Roy and Susan Bickerstaffe, New Zealand, September 2017

  • Having driven through Europe from the NE of England we were delighted when we arrived in Gualdo.  I've stayed in the village before but never at Hunters Lodge.  This place is perfect.  Everything you need is to hand; it's a home from home in a beautiful location.  Plenty of places to eat.  Try an agriturismo for a 'full blown' evening meal, from Antipasto to Dolce. (Tre Querce, Penna San Giovanni)
    Sarnano is a great place to explore as is Amandola and Assissi.  Finally, well done to Lynne and Ken, this place is the perfect retreat.  I'd come again!
    Jonathan and Claire, United Kingdom, August, 2017

  • For all you lucky people who found this beautiful house and think that all the photo's and reviews are too good to be true: think again, it is all true.  Everything we wanted to say has been said by our predecessors.  There is no need to repeat what is so obvious: it is a magnificent place to spend a holiday, in a beautiful location and the owners are the most wonderful and hospitable people you could meet.
    Thank you Lynne and Ken, we have had a marvellous time.  We will definitely return.
    Jan and Machteld, The Netherlands, August, 2017

  • This year we came for two weeks and had a really relaxing time.  It was very hot - high 30's nearly every day.  This year we didn't see boar from the house although we did see a mother boar and five babies on the side of the road on the way to San Ginesio.  We had a few very nice meals in Gualdo at L'Infinito a Tavola, past the petrol station and the 'Punto' supermarket. Very friendly.  We went to Camerino but it is completely closed due to earthquake damage at the moment.
    Dara and Nick, United Kingdom, August, 2017

  • Our holiday in the Marche is almost over.  We spent two wonderful weeks in this beautiful house.  It is perfect and very nicely furnished - nothing is missing.  Dear Lynne and Ken, you were always discreet but ready to help.
    For the rebuilding of your house, we wish you all the best.  We thank you for everything.

      Fabulous accommodation in a peaceful setting in Le Marche
  • We had a perfect nine day break at Hunters Lodge and our high expectations of the property were exceeded.  We now understand all the great reviews and why people return and we have already booked for next year. The lodge is really spacious, private and immaculately presented with everything you could wish for.
    The views in the area are breathtaking and we particularly enjoyed the spectacular vista from the top of the neighbouring village, Penna San Giovanni which takes in the Sibillini mountain range and the hilltop towns of Marche.  We explored many of the towns and villages in the area and look forward to discovering more.
    Ken and Lynne were perfect hosts, available to answer any questions but respect our privacy.
    We are returning to Hunters Lodge again next year to explore of Marche.

      Wonderful bolthole in Le Marche
  • Thank you both for a fabulous few days in a perfect bolt hole that ticked all our traveling, self-catering boxes and many more besides.  This is our fourth visit to Italia and the best region, so far.  More stunning scenery than Tuscany and the best mountain rides/ roads for Si's motorbike days.  Loved the company of Wonky, Minnie and co. together with all the wildlife each evening.  The wild boar being our highlight.  Just what we needed to recharge our batteries before moving house and a change of career for me.  Hope to return one day ....  think Christmas here would be magical!!

      Wonderful property perfect for a relaxing holiday
  • We love this property and have now stayed three times.  The property is immaculate and furnished inside and out to a very high standard with everything you could wish for, for a quiet, relaxing holiday.  Ken and Lynne are wonderful hosts and make you feel welcome and relaxed from the moment you meet them and perfectly strike that fine balance between helpfulness and discretion.  Returning again next year.

      Best Holiday accommodation we have ever found!
  • Immaculate, characterful, pretty house with everything you could wish for.  The house, garden and pool were fabulous and we were very well looked after by Lynne and Ken.  There could not have been a better equipped kitchen and the welcome pack of provisions was thoughtful.  I would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation.

  • Well we're back and had another wonderful holiday.  We did more relaxing this time, hence the bird list overleaf from Andrew.  Wonky and new kitten, Minnie kept me amused.  We also saw boar, deer and foxes.  Baby boars are very cute.
    Gualdo is an absolute gem in Le Marche.  Pizza and gelato at the local restaurants were amazing.  Planning our next trip here.  Would even consider moving to the area once funds and Brexit permit.  Lynne and Ken are the best hosts.  Thank you for our home from home.
    Gina and Andrew, United Kingdom, July, 2016
    (Please note that I have not inlcuded Andrew's list of birds seen / heard from Hunters Lodge {struggling with too many unrecognisable names}, however, if there are any bird watchers who are interested, contact me and I will send you a list).

      Bliss, as always!
  • Here we are on our third visit to Hunters Lodge!  This trip we have visited the impressive Frasassi Caves, walked at Lago di Fiastra and Bolognola and been to Ancona among other trips. Most of all we have enjoyed relaxing days here, sunbathing by the pool and bbqing in the evening.  We have also seen an abundance of wildlife, wild boar, deer, foxes, baby owls and a badger on the road at night and one tiny but very noisy frog / toad by the pool.
    Thanks again to Lynne and Ken for creating a lovely place to stay.  Another wonderful holiday!

  • Dear Lynne and Ken, The accommodation was everything we could have wanted.  Congratulations on the finish of the house and care of the grounds.  Shame the weather changed for the worse after four days - don't blame the cinghiale for not calling by in this weather.
    Best Meal:  Ristorante Pizzeria - Fiastra.  Unimpressive brick block from which the most fantastic food is produced.
    Best Bargain:  2 pizza slices 2 euro at Pizzeria Bamboo, Porto San giorgio, given the location.
    Best Ice Cream:  Cicco in Gualdo.  Shame they closed the gelateria after the first weekend.
    Best Views:  The road up to Santa Vittoria (east of here).
    Best Surprise:  The lakes are so blue, even when the sky is black.  How odd!
    Best Fauna:  Have you seen the size of the snails?
    Best Rainfall:  Thursday 1st October - it rained all day.
    Best Architecture:  Ascoli Piceno - beauty in travertine.
    Thanks again for a great holiday.

     Amazingly Relaxing
  • What a perfect place to spend our holiday.  We're planning our next trip in 2016.  Amazing weather, beautiful countryside, fabulous house - what more can we say?  Lots of Bee-eaters which delighted Andrew.  Deer, foxes, porcupine and wild boar all seen within walking distance.  San Ginesio restaurants are worth a visit.  Roman ruins  near Urbisaglia and the nature reserve and monastery at Abbadia di Fiastra were absolute serenity.
    Please look out for the sunbathing terrier in the middle of the road on your way out of Gualdo.
    You have made us very welcome.  We love it here and understand why you left the UK for such a lovely home here.  Thank you so much for everything.

  • Dear Lynne and Ken, another brilliant holiday, thank you so much.  Yours is the perfect place to relax, read, watch for signs of wildlife on the hillside and generally recharge our batteries.  Seeing the wild boar nearly nightly was an extra treat!  Thank you for your wonderful hospitality, again.

  • We've been to Marche many times but have now found the perfect place to stay - rural location with very high standard accommodation.  A thoroughly enjoyable fortnight recharging the batteries - shame we didn't see any boar but the little holes in the garden and the chewed roots meant that it was our fault and not theirs!  Thank you Lynne and Ken for being perfect hosts.  Would highly recommend and have already booked for next year.

  • We've had the most amazing honeymoon we probably could have ever imagined!  Hunters Lodge is quite simply stunning.  If this is what heaven looks like ... I'm gon' die a happy lady!
    Highlights include:
    - eating gelato in Sarnano
    - snorkelling the coves at Portonovo
    - spotting wild boar from the loggia (8.30pm)
    - our most delicious meal ever at San Fabiano
    Thank you so much for such a wonderful and comfortable stay.  We hope to return again (maybe in cooler weather ... 40 degrees - urgh).

    Absolutely Magical
  • From the welcoming jug of lavender, to the bottle of fizz and chocolate in the fridge - just as soon as we arrived at Hunters Lodge we knew we were in for a treat!!
    The house is finished with such style and luxury, there is not a thing we would change.  This really is as good as it gets - simply fabulous!
    Peace and tranquility abounds ..... it's amazing how snooze inducing birdsong and the toll of distant church bells can be.  We have relaxed and leave here ready to return to the fray ..... well reluctantly ready; we will be regulars here methinks!!!
    Oh, and the Marche was pretty amazing too.
    Thank you Lynne and Ken for being such kind and gracious hosts.

  • After three hectic days in Sienna, two weeks in this wonderful villa is just what was needed.  I'm afraid we've done very little - why leave this perfect holiday location??
    Our weather has been a bit mixed, but it has in no way spoiled our enjoyment.  We have become addicted to 'Breaking Bad' on the film box - unfortunately we couldn't fit in all 50 odd episodes.
    Thank you so much, Lynne and Ken for being such wonderful hosts.

      Just as good second time around

  • This was our second stay at Hunters Lodge, and everything we wrote in our previous review (see below - September, 2013) still holds true.  This is a fabulous property in the middle of a wonderful area of the country - the scenery around Gualdo is literally breathtaking.  I had forgotten during the intervening two years just how beautiful this area is, and it was a wonderful surprise re-discovering it.
    I ha
    dn't forgotten, though, that Lynne and Ken are the perfect hosts!
    The only regret was that we weren't able to fit in a fortnight's stay - hopefully we will next time, for there surely will be a next time!

       Another great holiday at Hunters Lodge

  • This was our second visit to Hunters Lodge and throughout our two week holiday, we talked about coming back again. For us this is the perfect place to relax and unwind - so peaceful with only the tractors in the fields and the bells from Gualdo to break the quiet. It is also an excellent location to explore Le Marche - our days out included Urbino - a long drive (just over 2 hours) but well worth a visit. Also walking up 'Gola dell'Infernaccio' and finding some hidden treasures such as 'Giardino Buonaccorsi (near Potenza Picena), Servigliano and 'La Contesa della Margutta' procession at Corridonia. Thanks again to Lynne and Ken for providing such a lovely place to stay with everything that is needed. We will be back!

       Perfectly Wonderful

  • This is a fabulous property, finished to the highest possible standard. There is everything you could possibly want in the house, from an excellent kitchen, comfy sofa and spa bath, so that whatever the weather you can relax. Spacious inside and out, the loggia is a lovely shaded place to sit for breakfasts and lunches and the pool-house in the evening is the perfect place to finish off a bottle of wine by candlelight while listening to the cicadas and watching the bats swooping over the pool. Lynne and Ken are excellent hosts – there when you need them, but not if you don’t. Peaceful and relaxing, this is the perfect place to recharge the batteries and escape from life for a while.

  • We have really enjoyed our three weeks at beautiful Hunters Lodge.  The views are amazing.  Lynne and Ken are so friendly and such a coincidence that they used to live just a few miles from us and were involved with local scouting as we were.  Lynne, we'll always think of you when we hear 'Dancing Queen' or Mamma Mia'!!!  Such a shame about the weather but one of those things!
    Thank you and we hope to see you again.

  • Even though the weather wasn't (initially) on our side we have had a great week in this fantastic holiday property.  The quality of the build and design of the interior are wonderful.  We're sure we'll struggle to find anywhere more attractive.  Added to that the views are to die for.  We have seen, deer, buzzards, bats, wild boar - just from the seats under the loggia.  Add to that, fantastic sunsets.
    We will be deinitely recommending this holiday home to friends and family.
    Many thanks.

       5 Star!!

  • Hunter's Lodge is the perfect getaway, ideal for couples looking for a break from reality. The location is just far enough outside the town of Gualdo to feel secluded but close enough to all local amenities. The Lodge itself was absolutely stunning and immaculately clean. Everything you need during your stay was to hand - local information, kitchenware, reading material and even some tasty local produce to get you started! The owners were always happy to help whenever we needed anything but respected our privacy at all times. They pointed us in the direction of fantastic local restaurants as well as the best towns in the area to visit. The Frasassi Caves, Macerata and the local pizzeria were just some of our highlights. Not forgetting coming down the winding road to Hunter's Lodge one night and seeing hundreds of fireflies lit up across the fields! We highly recommend Hunter's Lodge and thank Lynne and Ken for a wonderful stay.

            A holiday haven
  • Hunter's Lodge is a fantastic self catering property, which more than lived up to our expectations. It is quiet and secluded, but near to Gualdo, which has a lovely bakery and a couple of mini markets, with a fair choice of foodstuffs. The interior of the villa is absolutely stylish in design, filled with high quality, modern furniture and more than enough equipment than an average couple might need for their stay. All crockery, cutlery, kitchen-ware was of high quality, as were the fittings, furniture, ornaments, bedding, towels,etc. Outside are two shaded areas, the loggia - complete with cane furniture, a barbecue and outside dining table and chairs - and the pool house with its comfortable seating. From here we watched bats dipping into the pool for a drink at dusk. Other sightings of wildlife included red deer, long eared owls, buzzards and a family of wild boar- all seen in the field across from the loggia. The pool itself is certainly big enough for a dip during the heat of the day and is complimented with sun loungers, outside shower and umbrella. It is surrounded by well kept garden areas and is a pleasure to relax by. A holiday maker at Hunter's Lodge does not want for anything. Besides the well equipped kitchen there are maps, tourist guides, games, books, binoculars, a TV with a range of channels and access to new films, bath time luxuries, staple foodstuffs like oil and balsamic vinegar- you name it, it is probably there! On one side of the property is ample parking space. This is also used by the owners, who, true to their word, do not disturb their guests but are on hand to answer questions if needed. They were very welcoming and helpful, yet unobtrusive. We had a fantastic week at Hunter's Lodge, which we used as a base to explore nearby areas (try the town of Ascoli Piceno- our favourite - about 1 hour's drive away) as well as a haven to relax. All the reviews for this property extol its virtues. Believe me, you will not be disappointed with Hunter's Lodge. You will never find a better holiday home!

      Simply the best!

  • An outstanding property, spotlessly clean and beautifully and comprehensively furnished with everything you could possibly need or want. By far the best "Owners" property we've ever stayed in, with 2 attractive shaded terraces, a pool and a neat little open-fronted pool house. Extremely private, with views over fields and woods, and the local village only a couple of minutes away by car. All the info. you need provided in the house, as well as maps and guide books....even phrase books and dictionaries. A great situation for touring the hilltop villages and for trips into the Sibilline mountains, but if doing nothing by the poolside appeals, then this too is just the place. Owners Lynne and Ken are welcoming and helpful hosts, unobtrusively in the background but always there if needed. This may make the house seem too good to be true, but believe me, for once it is as good, or better, than we can say.

       Stunning Property!
  • We have enjoyed a fabulous week here at Hunter's Lodge. Wonderful facilities, if a little cool to enjoy the pool, but that's the way it was, weather wise.  We enjoyed being here so much, great walks, fab figs and grapes (thanks!!) and very peaceful evenings.  The BBQ was perfect, as was the poolroom and the loggia.  We have stayed in some very classy properties, the world over, from luxury condos in Canada to a beautiful tree house in Australia:  Hunter's Lodge is definitely in our top five!  We would love to come back sometime.

            Fabulous Property and Location
  • A wonderful, but all-too-short week at Hunters Lodge. The location is idyllic - tucked away down a quiet lane, completely isolated, yet only minutes from the lovely village of Gualdo. The surrounding countryside is beautiful - stunning scenery and very quiet roads, perfect for leisurely driving, soaking up the views. As for the property itself - the photographs are superb, but even they cannot do justice to the wonderful feeling of space and the quality of the accommodation. We really will have to return; there was so much more we could have seen locally, but the temptation to just have a coffee in the village, then lunch, then relax by the pool or under the loggia was just too great! Ken and Lynne were perfect hosts, friendly, welcoming and helpful but unobtrusive. We particularly enjoyed accidentally gatecrashing their morning coffee in Gualdo (twice, at different bars)! We have been renting properties in Italy (and occasionally elsewhere) for many, many years, and Hunters Lodge definitely ranks amongst the top two.

            Very Nice
  • A wonderful two weeks in a beautiful, well appointed house.  Any recommendations that we have used have been excellent – particularly da Secondo in Macerata.  So sorry to be going home!

  • We have had a really relaxing two weeks here.  I must say, the villa is THE MOST luxurious and amazing one we ever stayed in (and we’ve stayed in quite a few!)  Everything is finished to such a high level, looks beautiful and has everything we could ever need.  Hats off to Ken for amazing work – it’s beautiful.  The photos on the website really don’t do it justice.  Also, many thanks to Lynne and Ken for being so helpful and accommodating, they gave the perfect level of helpfulness and privacy.
    Apologies for our shrieks by the pool!!!
    Our highlights of the holiday were:
    Relaxing in the sun by the pool and playing with the kittens!
    Amazing scenery driving through the mountains.
    Caves at Frassassi – definitely don’t miss them – a bit of a drive though!
    Many delicious gelati!
    Delicious dinners out – in particular wonderful views and lovely cooking in Belvedere in Monte Leone di Fermo.
    Relaxing family fun pizza in Vecchi Sapore – Penna San Giovanni.
    Le Logge in Urbisaglia – amazing 6 course meal for 32 eurso each – wonderful.
    Many, many, many thanks, it really has been amazing and we’ve appreciated everything.  We’re returning home refreshed and ready for work (booo!)
    We are two happy people.

  • We have had such a wonderful stay here at Hunters Lodge.  We are sad to be leaving.  Peaceful, relaxing in a picturesque setting.  Thanks to Lynne and Ken for their hospitality.  We will certainly recommend to friends and family.

      Best Holiday in Italy
  • Thanks to Lynne and Ken for the use of their lovely house which more than met our expectations.  We have enjoyed lazy days by the pool, bbq’s to end the day and the last glass of wine in the pool house.  Our highlights have been: Spotting a young deer in the field across the gorge.   An impromptu wine tour and tasting at Serrapetrona vineyard.  Walking and driving in the Sibillini mountains and view of Piane Grande.  The opera at the Sferisterio.  The beach at Portonovo.  The basilicas at Tolentino and Loreto.  Our best holiday in Italy.

            A wonderful break in Le Marche
  • We had a really relaxed week at Hunter’s Lodge, the property is beautifully stylish, spacious and comfortable with every possible home comfort provided.  We felt that nothing was too much trouble.  Lynne and Ken made us really welcome and were there to provide any information about shops, restaurants and the local area, which is lovely and unspoilt.  We enjoyed days relaxing by the pool, in the pool house and evenings out under the loggia with the lovely views as well as trips out and about and meals in local restaurants.  All in all a wonderful break in Le Marche.

             Lovely "Villetta" Le Marche
  • The ‘villetta’ has been meticulously re-built, has contemporary furnishings and is well equipped with all mod cons.  Outside areas are well thought out and provide BBQ, eating and seating areas and sunbathing areas with a lovely, small pool.  A beautifully built loggia provides an ideal retreat for lazing around on those balmy nights.  We were Lynne and Kens first guests but nothing was too much trouble for them to sort out and advice and recommendations were excellent.  We will return!!!
