Villa al Gianicolo

September 2016

My dear Lori, we are back in San Diego after a fabulous nine weeks in Italy! I want to thank you very much for all your recommendations for our trip.
Our five weeks in Positano were beautiful and although, at the beginning we felt a bit crammed in the apartment, in the end it really was perfect for the both of us. We met the owners, had a drink with them at their home in Positano, and all in all it was a great experience.
Rome however was a different matter! The apartment was way above our expectations! Beautiful, comfortable, completely equipped with whatever we could need. Ludovico, took care of every little eventuality. Jacky, the helper, was excellent. At the beginning we didn't take her every day but as the house filled up with our guests she came every day and with the greatest of dispositions.
I really want to thank you very much for making our stay in Italy so very enjoyable and rest assure that you will be included in our future planning - hopefully not too far in the future!
Looking forward to hearing from you and once again thank you very much.
Love, Gail T.
