“Dear Liliana and John,

thank you both so much for a wonderful week at La Preghiera. It is SOOOOOOOOOOOO beautiful. I loved every fascinating and thoughtful detail. I also love ALL the staff. You have created a marvellous family atmosphere, with all of you clearly devoted to each other.

There were lots of special moments, not least Sally Ann and Marco's jazz concert and the romantic candle-lit musical finale in the church. John's tour of La Preghiera and the development near Montone were fascinating, and the traditional fiesta was fun.

Please tell Sandra her home made pasta dish with the Porcini mushrooms was the best ever.

I hope we will be able to send you some nice guests, and that your bookings will pick up steadily.

I'm afraid we haven't looked at the photos yet but I will send you any of the chapel evening if they come out OK.

Many thanks again to all of you. Tell Julia I still have my painted toenails to remind me of our holiday.
