We found the house without any problem and took your kind advice to shop at Lidl on our way here.

La Pineta is wonderful, so well appointed and with a wealth of ‘things ‘ that we would not have expected, to name but a few; coffee machine, teapot, lots of towels, wine in the fridge, decent knives and a well appointed kitchen.

The garden and pool are excellent, the roof terrace, where I am sitting watching the light begin to fall across the valley, is delightful. The surrounding hills and countryside have surpassed my expectations thus far, we are off for a long walk to Monte Tondo shortly.
