What our clients say about us
Peter and I have just got back from a truly wonderful 8 weeks away. The bed and breakfasts you booked for us in France were perfect. Un Mas de Sol was wonderful and we had a fabulous time visiting lots of little villages, eating and drinking magnificent food, especially the 2 meals we enjoyed cooked by Richard at the B & B. We loved staying in the Chateau near Beynac and Annick in the Loire was delightful. The weather was absolutely perfect for the whole trip and 3rd time lucky for us in Paris; 7 days of sunshine. The little Fiat proved to be good choice and easy to drive. No problems at all. I loved pottering around in France - a dream come true for me. You choices were great. Thank you so much. I will certainly recommend you to anyone travelling.
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.
What can I say, Uzes was a real highlight of our holiday, we loved everything about it. 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. The villa itself was fantastic, roomy, airy and tasteful. The location is very central and when we were in the village we could walk wherever we needed to go. So.... thank you so much for organizing this part of our holiday.
Our accommodation in Saignon exceeded all expectations! So lovely, incredibly well appointed and fresh. Just moved in and felt "at home". Wonderful!
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.
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
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. Ciao!
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.
Dear Michele - Just to let you know that we had a fantastic trip. Thanks for everything you organised. We loved Lucca and the apartment was great, as were Florence and Rome hotels and the restaurant in Rome was a highlight. Kind regards
Hi Michele We had a wonderful time in L’Isle sur la Sorgue - the accommodation was perfect with extra large rooms , after a day out we had picnic lunch down by the river . The weather and village were perfect. The sightseeing excursions and drivers excellent. Could not fault anything. Thank you so much for arranging everything for us we had a wonderful 4 days in Provence. Many thanks and kind regards
Hi Michele I’ve been meaning to pass on the feedback re the Trebbiano..... They had a wonderful time there & found it to be an excellent base. They visited Siena several times using the bus that departed from right by the cottage & explored different parts of the city on each visit. They walked to Monteriggioni one day and said the walk was very pleasant, but might be hard in the heat of summer! They had dinner at the local restaurant twice and said the food was excellent and enjoyed a vineyard tour on the property. They could have done much more but enjoyed just relaxing in the environment of the cottage and surrounding property A great option for guest without a car. Thank you Warm Regards
Hi Michele, We had a wonderful time away, especially in Italy, and that’s almost entirely attributable to your advice and effort … so thank you very much. Each of the accommodation bookings you made for us turned out to be excellent and we really must thank you for suggesting a short stay in Lucca. Absolutely wonderful!! In fact, we’re toying with the idea of returning next year! Thanks again Michele, great work!
Ciao Michele! We are loving our stay in the farmhouse! It is in a beautiful part of Tuscany. And the village is great! We go off and explore early in our car ( all good so far but have a few more grey hairs to be sure!) So thanks for recommending this to us. Em doesn't want to leave tomorrow!! A fab place to relax after her term at Florence Academy.
We are just back from a very enjoyable 5 week European holiday, which included 2 weeks staying at Villa Castelonchio, Tuoro Sul Trasimeno, in Umbria. Our stay at Villa Castelonchio was the highlight of our trip and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Barry and Karen where the perfect hosts and couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. Their input on what to see and do in the area was fantastic, the only downside was that on the first night they introduced us to……Aperol Spritzer which we have developed a real taste for and now stock the ingredients ready for the coming summer in New Zealand and also sent us to their favourite local restaurant where the Pizza is superb and we will be hard pressed to find anything close to in NZ. The villa was everything that your website said it would be and we couldn’t have been happier. The fact that it had a full kitchen was a godsend for us as we like to prepare our own meals for some of the time we are away. It was well appointed and the 2 level layout meant that the other couple we had staying with us for some of the time could have their own space. The villa’s location just a couple of minutes out of the Village meant that it was lovely and peaceful in a rural setting surrounded by olive groves and being just over the Tuscan/Umbria border meant that all the amazing tourist destinations were a short drive away, or as we did on a couple of occasions, a short train journey from the local station. Barry and Karen keep the place immaculate and between the Aperol Spritzers, the Pizza and the swimming pool we didn’t want to leave. Kind regards
