Villa Gioianna is fully equipped for an enjoyable vacation. You can rent a room by the night (minimum three nights) or the entire house by the week, with the included housekeeping service (2 hours/day) and/or with additional staff and a cook. There is a 4 1/2 acre estate surrounding the Villa, but it seems much more vast, as we abut the vineyards of an excellent winery and the views carry on over their property and on to the hills, villages, and fields for miles. One of the great advantages of the Villa is that we are in the countryside where it is peaceful and very private, yet shops are reasonably close. The closest village is 1 km, the closest shop 1.5 kms and the closest market town, 6km. In minutes you can run into town for a forgotten carton of milk or to pick up fantastic fresh pastries for breakfast.
