    Guestbook

    The stay at Linda's Villa was amazing. I had my brother and two sisters join us for a family vacation, and the way the bedrooms were set up was perfect for separate adults and their privacy.

    The gardens are unbelievable, and with the great pool and views, it was difficult to leave to go and explore the region.

    We loved the layout of the Villa - very comfortable with excellent furnishings and style.

    The whole trip was fantastic, and working with IVHE was once again seamless on what must be our 7th or 8th IVHE holiday in the last 4 years.
