Guest comment

My family and I spent 2 wonderful weeks at La Rogia. It provided all the sunshine and blue sky that we had hoped for during Englands cold and wet Summer. We loved the pool, The countryside that we could wander freely through and for your restaurant recomendations. I had set out needing tranquility, children for a busy child to play with and an outdoor action holiday and found it all ! Elizabeth Davis, UK
