Located only a few meters from the Adriatic Sea, Thomas' place is a stunning jewel that enjoys spectacular views of the sea and the mountains. Newly renovated, this clean villa offers classic rustic charm with a stylish modern touch and all the comfortable amenities you need. It has all you could wish for in the privacy of your home. So we found ourselves most mornings and early afternoons hanging out at the house cooking, eating outside surrounded by majestic views, and simply enjoying the premises like the private pool overlooking the sea.
There are two delicious restaurants right near the house that we tried; one with a very elegant setting on the rocks overlooking the sea, and the other a simple yet delicious joint up the street. We enjoyed swimming daily in the sea (both the rocky beaches on the Adriatic, and sandy beaches on the Ionic). There's also a scenic hiking path easily accessible from the house, as well as boat touring if you prefer to explore by sea. There are many cute surrounding towns we drove to with plenty of delicious and affordable dining and shopping options even off season. It is a region that even attracts famous American celebrities, such as Ellen Mirren, who own a home and bar in one of the surroundings towns.
Thomas was a wonderful host - warm, hospitable, kind and generous. He went beyond the call of duty to make sure we had everything we needed for our comfort. He was also an excellent resource for local attractions, restaurants, shopping and more. He really went out of his way to make sure we were happy guests. And happy we were, so much that we definitely look forward to returning to this place in the near future!
