i chose villa valentina to serve as a home away from home for my photography retreat in the cinque terre in june. from the very beginning, paula was eager to help organize + plan every detail for my guests. from reservations at local eateries to our final dinner complete with opera on the terrace, paula was fabulous!
i have stayed at villa valentina prior to this visit and each time i am there, i feel more + more like family. paula + angelo have created a beautiful oasis in the quaint hillside of levanto! they have thought of and provide every detail + luxury. the rooms are perfectly appointed. breakfast is amazing every morning. expresso + fresh orange juice. fresh eggs + pastries. the gazebo + terrace beautiful.
we rode bikes to bonassola courtesy of vv which is always a highlight. we were given a vip boat tour with angelo of the 5 villages + loved dunking into the ligurian sea while being served prosecco! it was truly a dream!
i think i can speak for my entire group of 8 women when i say that it was a week where every detail of our stay was absolutely perfect! i hope to host there again next season.
thank you paula, angelo, elizabeth, barbara, valentina + rosie! i adore you all + can not wait for another FINDING WONDER photo retreat with YOU all!
grazie mille! arrivederci al presto!!!More
