We had a wonderful experience at Villa Lestra
We had a wonderful experience at Villa Lestra

We had a wonderful experience at Villa Lestra. Also, as the temperatures were just heating up as we arrived, the pool was a great place to spend hours. A big strong point for us was the fence and latched gate preventing our toddler from getting to the pool before we could catch up to him.  Ditto on the gate at the top of the stairs on the first floor (European) inside the villa. Again, this thwarted the toddler from making a break for freedom (and doing a header down the stone staircase).

The cooking lesson was fun and the chef led us in the preparation of a great meal. It was so much food that we had to beg off from a pizza party next door at the Agriturismo property sponsored by the owner (Francesco) that evening.

The roads: as one gets closer to the Villa the roads become more narrow and less well-maintained. The final 500m or so of the road is an unpaved, single lane with deep drainage ditches on both sides. I did not try navigating this one in the dark. The roads to most of the places we went to involve sharp curves and switch-backs. Sober drivers are a must.

We certainly recommend the villa.

Finally, we want to thank you for all your help in setting this up.  You are responsive and you kept us apprised of questions which were in-process, so we didn’t have to wonder if something dropped off your radar.
