The villa’s interior understated elegance has the ability to evoke old world charm and create a warm, inviting atmosphere, while the outside features, such as a verdant park, a private swimming pool, tennis court and soccer field, add value for the guests who love the outdoors living and active vacations.

A stay at Leila will put you on top of the world - figuratively and literally - perched over 1,000 feet above sea level, with panoramic view of the surrounding forest, olive groves and vineyards.

It was all perfect: The house is great. The room setup and overall accommodations matched our family’s needs very well.

All of the staff: Marcella (housekeeper), Claudio (server), and Donatella (chef) were kind, professional and extremely accommodating. Marcella was very sweet and did an amazing job assisting on dishes and laundry.

Claudio was kind and professional, and did well interacting with the family - kids and adults. Donatella's food was absolutely amazing. There was always (way) more than we could eat. It was all delicious and extremely well done. Both Claudio and Donatella were very fluent in English. - Blair
