As one recently back from the Villa I can appreciate just where you are! It is really fun to
read posts from people who are having the same WONDERFUL experience we had. Please
say hi to Sandra and Hugo in the kitchen (and Chef Michael) and tell them that we think of
them with great fondness. Of course the same to Koen, Gaetana, Hugo the manager and
Igor....Welcome to the other side. It just gets better from here on....
