Tempa Del Violino gave us the Italy we wanted to experience!! Tucked away in the countryside, far from the crowds, lines, traffic jams and noise, a great getaway! Our hosts were warm and welcoming, we felt like we were visiting family! The accommodations were good and we enjoyed sharing this lovely villa with our friends. Clearly it is a very old villa, but nicely renovated (a few things to complete, but still very nice). From every window, breathtaking panoramic views of the property , distant rolling hills, vineyards, olive trees, and grazing sheep .
It is a place you can revel in the beauty of nature and hike the rolling meadows and nearby forest paths. We wandered the small hilltowns nearby, , sampled local cuisine and wine and saw the famous abandoned city (Cracow). It was a photographer's dream! An extra pleasant surprise, was the option to have our meals prepared by our hosts Maria Teresa and her "Mama" . They prepared delicious local dishes and we dined at the Villa enjoying great food and wine in cozy surroundings!
It was some of the very best of Italy. Grazie! We will return.
