The Villa Basile was a very nice house located on a very large and beautiful property. It was plenty of outdoor space for the kids to play and explore! The owners of the Villa were very friendly and helpful. The sanctuary of Frans of Assisi located in La Verna only about 1 hour drive from the Villa was absolutely worth a visit. A very peaceful and beautiful place in gorgious surroundings.
