Interaction with guests
Having managed two family villas, in 2014 I started managing friends' villas in local areas, most of them rural areas. So, taking into account that being in touch with the visitors is a must in order to help them in upcoming inquiries or give them advice, where to go or what to do, I will do my best to please each one of you. Furthermore, any kind of arrangement (e.g car hire, excursions, diving, cruises, transfers) can be made so that you will be troubled as less as possible prior or during your stay! Bicycles and a tablet are provided upon request for free! I am here to build a relationship with you through our outstanding personalized service, warm hospitality and knowledge.
