A wee thankyou note for organising Lornano villas for our group. It was an outstanding success, just perfect in every way. Having the use of the 3 villas meant we were not in each other's space as each person/couple had their own bedroom. Loved the pool and the environs, being 'In the country' was a real asset.
The location was ideal, we could access all the hilltop villages easily. The cooking course was a great success amid much laughter we all managed to take away some helpful Italian tips, plus aprons!
I have included a photo of our 'last supper' with Silvia our chef of the moment using the wonderful fresh produce that we found at the market in Colle val d'este!

I wanted to thank you very much for your expert help and advice in arranging our Italy trip. We were thrilled with how it all worked out. The choices of where we went, where we stayed and how we got around were all perfect. Your organisation was spot on and every booking, flight and transfer was perfectly in place for us.
We look forward to discussing our next European trip with you.
We booked this villa and found the process to be fast and easy. We wanted a villa in the Ligurian Coast region to enable us to visit the Cinque Terre villages. As we were meeting up with two other couples for this adventure the property had to be large enough for six adults, but suitable for Kiwis on a budget.
The house is well equipped and has full catering facilities should you wish to cook (we didn't and chose most nights to eat local fresh produce or eat out).
The property owner, was friendly and welcoming and provided us with a bottle of his own home grown olive oil, which he was surprised to find that we had almost used up by the end of our stay, as well as a bottle of his own red wine. The wine did not last as long as the oil and just might have been consumed the first night! We can thoroughly recommend Dolina.
Just to let you know - we returned on Sunday after 6 fantastic weeks away. We want to thank you so much for all the accommodation bookings you did - it all worked perfectly! Thanks again for great work on our behalf- we appreciate it. We are going to go back in late August 2016 probably to both France and Italy so I will be asking for your help again.
Just want to let you know how much we enjoyed our week in Saignon. The cottage was delightful, very comfortable and very well equipped. It exceeded our expectations. As you may recall we had a cordon bleu chef joining us for a few days and he was delighted with the standard of kitchen equipment. It was so quiet at night we slept very well and that is important to me. Wendy and I enjoyed morning walks around the local country roads. The village itself was very picturesque and charming with its narrow streets and location perched on the hilltop.
In addition to your notes, there was a very comprehensive guide in the cottage provided by the owner and I did enjoy reading her 2 books. We started most mornings with coffee and internet at Christine's cafe and we had some very enjoyable evening meals, notably a meal cooked by Andrew at The Cave. Everyone was generous in their support for us getting the most our of our stay and in enjoying the area.
We would recommend this cottage to others.
The villa Maison Belle was way beyond expectations, and the local contact who met and showed us around was an absolute delight, she was very helpful and nothing was a bother and pointed out all the best shops, restaurants and must do's.
Thanks again Jude.
Our accommodation in Saignon exceeded all expectations!
So lovely, incredibly well appointed and fresh. Just moved in and felt "at home".

Dear Team at Eurovillas & Tours
When I sit and reflect on our wonderful holiday in Europe one factor stands above all others. Quite simply it is that our holiday was so easy to organize and the execution was seamless.
My holiday started by flying into Paris, staying 2 nights in the charming Hotel which was centrally located enabling me to walk everywhere with other members of the tour and then off to Nimes. A great recommendation thank you.
The mas at Uzes was ideal accommodation for our cooking demonstrations and as a base for our weeks adventure offering plenty of room, it was fresh, clean and captivating. I appreciated having the choice to go for an early morning walk, a swim in the pool or read in a tranquil setting.
I thought the balance of half day trips and cooking classes was perfect. I had not appreciated how much I would learn out of the kitchen. They certainly worked hard to not only provide us with interesting dishes but presented them beautifully. I loved the table settings and the different eating locations around the Mas. They made sure we had a thoroughly enjoyable time by great attention to detail. From knowing one person at the beginning I left with many new friends.
Thank you also for your fantastic organization of the next part of my holiday when Gary and my sons met me at Avignon.Gary said the flights were great, the TGV from Paris was easy and the rental car was waiting at the Railway station. The cottage you found for us just outside the intimate village of Saignon was perfect.We picked up our rental bikes that Eurovillas organized and spent 5 days riding from one amazing village to the next.
Before returning to New Zealand we had a few days in London at the Hotel in Bloomsbury which was just perfect like the Paris accommodation. Really central, beautifully clean and a bit of a treat to finish off 4 very special weeks.
I felt I must write as I really valued the knowledge you had in helping us make the right choices. We will be booking through you again as it was a much more superior trip than if we had tried to organize it ourselves on the internet.
Italy next time with Eurovillas and Tours.
A special thank you for working so hard to ensure all of our needs were met and any challenges were overcome quietly and with a minimum of fuss. Again, thank you so much for a memorable holiday experience.
Gary and Jude
We have enclosed the villa survey forms and must thank you for planning an exceptional 3 months holiday in Italy for us. It went without a hitch and we were impressed by professionalism of your company again and again. Eurovillas is obviously held in high regard by the property owners too, and the fact that these properties have been pre-paid helps a lot. So thank you and we can't wait to book our next trip with you...
Thank you again and best regards
Fiona and Norton
Hi to all the team!
I just wanted you to know that our family had an absolutely wonderful holiday in Tuscany! You are to be congratulated on your efficiency and organisation!
We had many wonderful experiences and a holiday we will think of fondly for a very long time.
Just wanted to thank your company so much for organizing our holiday of a lifetime in France. The little hotel you recommended in Paris was absolutely delightful and oh so French!
Our villa in Provence far exceeded expectations - the owners were absolutely charming and they did everything possible to make our stay an enjoyable one. We also loved the property in Vence and were so glad we followed your recommendation to have a week in each area.
We were very impressed by your organization and knowledge of the area. Little touches, like a list of the days of the markets in the various villages and recommended restaurants were very much appreciated.
Thank you once again for all your hard work! We want to go back and see more and will be back in touch next year.
Gill and Matt
