Villa Elia is a superb house for groups of friends or family. The owner's dogs live in a secure compound at the edge of the large grounds far from the house and will not disturb in any way.
If you're looking to accommodate more than the 17-guest maximum capacity of Villa Elia, or simply need more bedrooms, why not take a look at Casina Elia
, a 3-bedroom villa owned by the same family just across the road from Villa Elia (bringing maximum total group size up to 23). If you do go for this option, i.e. taking both houses, please note that there is an extra charge of €1,575 to be paid at the time of booking to cover the extra cleaning and house management costs.
Safely enclosed on the grounds some way from the villa are a pair of friendly donkeys, Dolce and Gabbana.
