Julia Donat - UK

The location is ideally suited to walkers as one can go for lovely and varied walks without getting in a car. The hilltop towns in the region are beautiful and plentiful and there are many places eat and drink, local markets and locally grown vegetable and fruit. Our hosts gave us a wonderful welcome and many recommendations for eating and shopping. The museums and art galleries, churches and monasteries are just amazing.

Our two weeks were one long 70th birthday party for me, and eating out under the stars most nights in this wonderful place with family and close friends made it a very special birthday indeed.
