"We loved the house, the garden and the views but what makes this holiday is the people. Rita has created a true home from home experience, she is so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Marina our fitness instructor is inspirational and the four exercise classes were varied, fun but still tough!
Fernanda our babysitter was so so good with the babies, although she didn't get much of a look in with my mum in residence! The other mums were so friendly and the atmosphere completely relaxed. Both mum and I were sad to leave and felt as if we had been on holiday with friends - we would definitely love to return to Rita and Villa Radicata." - Jane Stockings
"Would not have thought a holiday with a 13-month baby would be relaxing but it was. It was a real treat to have time with Ossian and time to myself to do daily yoga and cooking lessons. I loved the views, the garden, the pool, the relaxed pace, the wine. The house is great and would love to return." - Isabel Choat, London
