REVIEWS

Hi Manola, We just returned from Italy and our week visit to Il Portico. We absolutely loved the villa and had a great time. The villa was exactly as you had described. Everything went very well and we had no unpleasant surprises. Loredana was great. She came by every day to work in the garden or to be available for questions, but was always discrete and never in the way. Also Gianmarco came through for us. As you know we had several airport/train transfers and he took care of everything perfectly. Thank you for all that you did to give us a perfect vacation. Congratulations for running such an excellent organization! You did a fine job for us. I will recommend you to our friends and acquaintances without hesitation. I also particularly appreciate your answering all my questions so quickly and professionally over the last few months. I wish you continued success with the business. We will surely contact you again. Sincerely,

Elizabeth from USA • 10 – 17 June 2006
