Unique Family Holiday in Italy

"We had a lovely holiday in Bracciano. Fulvia and her husband were the perfect hosts. We were a little nervous about how little Italian we could speak but Fulvia made every effort to communicate with us. Fulvia was always very helpful and even organised train tickets for a day trip to Rome. We were made very welcome but felt we could also get on with our own plans. Fulvia included some nice touches in our holiday including home made wine, berries to taste and an invitation to eat pizza with her family on the final evening. We would love to return sometime."
