Guest comments Villa dei Gelsi (1)

Maciej Pilarz, Częstochowa, Poland

It was really a very nice stay in Villa dei Gelsi. we have been there in 4 families, all together 16 people (5 kids). The house is located far from main roads. The place is very attractive for bikers (however the slope with the driveway is sharp and 3,3 km long). The house itself is very climatic with a very nice garden. Very nice and kind owner. So the only words I could say is that this place is recommended because our impressions are very positive.
