booked through villa parade , who had been recommended to me as professional & honest.
apart from the mix up with our car hire...... (too small for our party, car hire company wanting an extra extortionate £490.00 euros to up grade to correct size. !!! overcame the problem by taking two cars !! lucky we had an extra driver and his licence handy !!) villa parade making a half hearted gesture & nominal refund to us of half the cost (£90.00)
the villa had "extras"
I write this from a humerous angle as it was the only way to deal with the sitaution at the time, but on reflection villa parade you need to be honest about this property ......
described as "on its own with no neighbours"........ apart from that is ,"the ELF" , who lives at the bottom of the garden...... the Elf being the owner .......... who lives in what I would describe as a converted garage , has his own gate into the garden of "your villa" , and visits each and every morning to check out his property ...... 7.30 am one morning !!!
we made a joke about it in the end,.......... who spotted him first, who got approached by him........ we had small children , not for one minute am I sugesting any thing untoward, but when on holiday your want your privacy & guaranteed safety for your selves and children, not a neighbour wandering into "your" garden at his leisure.
apart from the Elf, the propertry was ok........ except for several chipped and broken cups, tiny kettle ,damp in the downstairs bedroom ( not expected of such a new property) so much so that we couldn't put clothes in the drawers as they smelt damp the next day. The owner (Elf) very noisily sanding down his doors on 3 early mornings for several hours, not very respectful of your guests.
last morning when we were packing up an cleaning his villa, mr Elf hung around, asking when we were leaving ........ I advised him 10.00 am as agreed, he had already begun his pool cleaning etc... around us ready for the next guests. we were beginning to loose patience with this guy ........we left on the dot of 10 am ....to him calling out "see you next year " ........ I don't think so !! .
Villa Parade be honest , warn clients of this guy or tell him to keep out the garden !!!
