In any case these accommodations reflect the local traditions and the owner's personal taste in architecture and in furnishings. In each accommodation page Anita Villas provides an accurate description of the property, supplied with photos and layout, which correspond to the state of the property at the time of the visit and acquisition.

Final tips
One of the great attractions of our accommodations is their location, in the countryside. This, of course, is also the natural habitat of many animals and insects. Anita Villas shall not be held responsible for the presence of animals and insects in the area, however we advise you to use a repellent and pay attention to organic waste that attracts insects. Moreover in summer animals can be attracted by any source of water. To help keep your accommodation free of insects and animals, don’t leave food out on tables and often empty the organic waste bin. Also use insect screens and keep doors and windows closed to prevent insects from entering.
