We had a fabulous holiday at your beautiful home "Villa Michelina" this week.  The setting in Marina di Praia is wonderful and the locals made us feel very welcome.  Our holiday was
made even better by your generous hospitality and in particular the "Pizza Night" you organized for us... We will never forget it..."it was magical."  We are sad to leave today but know that
we will look forward to returning as soon as we can.  "Molto Bellissimo"  
Thank you for such a great time here.  It's been so much fun!  Your house is lovely!  The pizza oven was fun too!  Hope to see you again in the future.  Thank you!  Love, Kelly
Many many thanks! What a wonderful house and great place to holiday.  Thanks for all the memories.  Jill

Grazie Mille a la famillia Castellano!
You are
incredible hosts!  The Villa Michelina is a beautiful space on this earth.  We thank you for your heart felt hospitality.  We thoroughly enjoyed our time here.  We hope to someday
return to your special home in Praiano.  But first
you must visit our family in Toronto, Canada!  We only ask that you bring yourselves (and perhaps a little taste of Michelina's delicious
"Orangecello" :)  We will remember (for all our lives) the special memories and our time in Italy.  We wish you many years of healthy and happy times together!  With our warmest and best

Dear Michelina, Umberto and Family,
Thank you
so much to all of you for making us feel so very welcome in your home- Michelina, your hospitality and generosity were fantastic.  We loved the lemoncello and cakes at our
arrival and the eggs and zucchini were just super!  *Unfortunately not enough time for us to eat them all!)  A lovely  home in an amazing location- we could not have asked for a nicer
place to spend our honeymoon.  Not nearly enough time for us to see everything we would have liked, but that just means we need to come back :)
Definitely a boat trip to Capri next time.  Thank you again most sincerely for everything, and many thanks also to Faith for helping us settle in.
Very warmest wishes,
Leah & Graham Richard (London, UK)

lemoncello (a first sip of all of us) and all of your hospitality.  What a surprise to find out that our neighbor upstairs was from home!  Faith thank you for answering our questions and
arranging our trip to Pompei and Capri.

to come back some day :)

Ekaterina, Michail, Irina, Sergey and little Maxim- Russia, Moscow
To Michelina and her wonderful family,
Thank you for sharing this beautiful home with us.  The 5 days we spent at Villa Michelina and La Praia were most definitely the best part of our 10 days in Italy.  Having never been to
Europe, never to Italy, never the Amalfi Coast, we had high hopes and an image in our minds of how it would be.  Villa Michelina and your hospitality fulfilled and far exceeded those
expectations.  Thank you for the treats, the lemoncello and Orangecello and your gentle and gracious smiles.  We will leave here with this place burned in our hearts and minds- the
sounds of the waves upon the rocks and the lyrical music of the Italian language; the smells of the fresh lemon in our hands handed to us by a smiling farmer as we hiked up to
Ravello or fresh basil in the vase by the window; the sight of sun-kissed building scattering the hillside, spilling with pink bougainvillea.  We will remember this pace always.  Forever
the smell of pink lilies will remind us of this warm house and your lovely hospitality.  
Matt and Vickie- Knoxville, TN USA
Dear Michelina and family,
We thank you very much for the wonderful time we had in your villa.  Thank you for your hospitality , friendliness, and warm hearts.  The great time that we had will never be
forgotten... It will stay in a fond memory in our hearts.  Sadly we have to leave today back to Switzerland.  May God protect, and bless you all.
Loving greetings Sam, Dean and Mark- Zurich, Switzerland
We highly advise everyone to book Villa Michelina directly through us (the owners of the property).  
There have been a few instances where the villa was double booked by several agencies.
