Villa Vager has bundles of charm and character. The owners have put their heart and soul into this property and you can really feel it. From the jams made by Marina to the ATV tours run by Nicolas you are never far from the essence of this property, the people. That being said, the rooms are wonderfully designed by Marina, with original pieces throughout you can see the thought and love that has been put in. Go once and you will always want to revisit it.
