  • Beautiful in every season especially spring and winter. All the villages are different and very friendly. Slow down and relax and take your time, enjoy a glass of wine at lunchtime and a plate of local meats and cheeses...simply wonderful.
  • A wonderful, dreamlike place. When the sun sets, it makes you wish you would never leave. The small villages all around are a pleasure to visit. Worth at least a couple of days to explore it all in peace.
