We have left our review to the end of the summer to simply be able to say “our stay in Stazzu la Capretta was the best summer holiday we had all year!”
It was a fantastic experience in a most peaceful beautiful location with the warmest, most friendly hosts you could find - Alain and Fabienne. They are stars of entertaining, cooking, dining, chatting and making everyone feel personally welcome (special). Food was superb!
Meals were very much a great part of the holiday, along with the rich and varied conversations we enjoyed as we all sat under the old olive tree on the terrace. Company was always to be had with the animals, the dogs, cat horse, goats, hens and geese and even the odd tortoise wandering through the paddock.
The cottages are well crafted, rustic, practical, comfortable and very clean.
The main room is the principal bedroom with comfy chair, small fridge, kettle, tea making facilities and TV. Outside is a lovely veranda and lounge area to admire the stunning scenery and remote countryside.
Sitting in the evening listening to the silence is a part of the holiday to relax and enjoy.
We found the stresses of life softly fall away during our stay and we returned home happy contented fellows. Almost life changing and would recommend a return visit. We look forward to doing it again, in maybe the next two to three years. One couple revisits twice yearly – we understand why. Thank you Fabienne and Alain.
