I have been to Italy several times now and I have to say that staying a week at Villa di Stelle has got to be one of the best trips (if not the best) I have ever had there. The guest house itself is stunning and the views are spectacular-especially from the pool and rooftop patio. I was there for a week and still feel like I barely scraped the surface of the amazing Italian countryside all around the property. I was actually really surprised at how many villages, vineyards, resteraunts, beaches, trails etc. that there were in the area. There also seems to be a “festa” like every weekend or so. One of the hosts, Jo, recommended I go to the one in Crecchio (a really charming medieval town 30 min away), which turned out to be a fantastic evening of delicious local foods, wines and fireworks. The hosts themselves were an absolute pleasure- they were always available if I needed anything but were also excellent about giving me space and privacy, which was actually really refreshing. And somewhat unrelated, I should also mention that the mozzarella cheese from the cheese farm literally up the road is out of this world… All in all, a fantastic week of relaxing and authentic Italian countryside. I would go back in a heartbeat. Thanks again Chris and Jo!!!!!
