This is a truly magical place. The 10 cottages are spread throughout the rustic landscaping. Each seems to have it’s own charm. The cottage I stayed in had a magnificent view of the tiny cove where the Villaggio is situated. The cottage is well equipped and very clean. The beds are comfortable with nice linens. The kitchen is quite modern and had everything one could want to prepare a wonderful meal. Lots of pots and pans, dishes, bowls, etc.
The cottage is full of interesting art and some gorgeous rustic antiques. The kind of furniture a worker and not a wealthy person would have owned hundreds of years ago. If you’re into luxury this is not the place for you. Everything here has a charm. I would liken it to going to a grandparent’s home- nicely appointed with interesting items that have been collected over the years but needing a little bit more upkeep than grandpa can manage.
The owners are very casual and gracious. They let me stay the full day my last day because the weather was poor and I had to catch a ferry that night. Very unusual in this day and age. The cottages are less than a minute walk down a couple of staircases to the beach but the beach isn’t much. Somewhat rocky and the sand is quite gritty. But the water is clean and warm so lots of swimming opportunities.
