If you have not decided yet what private luxury villa to book to enjoy these recommendations, you may check Chalet Ormello for a rustic and more cozy aesthetic. It is packed with nine opulent bedrooms, and is perfect for families or when traveling with a group. However, if you prefer a smaller villa but are still generous with amenities, Chalet Aurora is the best pick. Unlike Chaler Ormello, it has an in-house jacuzzi and hammam or a Turkish type of bath, popular for people who prefer to rest and relish a relaxing steam bath.
