“Perfect Destination”
Reviewed 7 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Spent a lovely week at this accommodation. The house is large and well equipped for all your holiday needs, the only thing it was lacking was a microwave and toaster. We did not have access to the lower level which was a pity as the outside space would have been more accessible when eating alfresco. The pool was nice, however it is a bit cool even this late on in the summer. In my opinion it needs cleaned more regularly as we had to fish out drowned rodents on 3 consecutive mornings, however this did not stop us using it but might put others off!! Overall we had a fantastic week and visited lots of lovely villages and towns in the surrounding area. We would have no hesitation in returning to this accommodation in the future.

Thank you for your review. Sorry about the microwave and toaster, it seems the family before had taken them downstairs and the cleaners didn' think to bring them up. This is now on their checklist!
The downstairs is only available to guests hiring all 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and the second living room and second kitchen/diner which is of course a more expensive option. We tend to place guests hiring just the 3 bedrooms upstairs since this only happens outside of July and August, and the upstairs is lighter, airier, and warmer if the weather changes. It also has the best views and the terrace leading from the kitchen for al fresco dining. There is also the terrace behind the house. We will now make the ground floor an option if guests prefer.
The pool is cleaned thoroughly and tested twice weekly. If there is a heavy storm causing problems at the pool, we can arrange further cleans on request. We also leave a net for fishing out insects or for little animals that may fall in the pool. I am afraid the week that you stayed was unusually wet and all the pools in the area seemed to be filled with baby frogs every few hours - a phenomenon not seen in the entire 15 years we have been letting. All pools in the area seemed to suffer the same fate. Hopefully it won't recur.
We are glad that despite these issues you had a great time!

“Best villa yet!!”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I can't imagine a more perfectly sited villa, the views are awe inspiring, the pool is beautiful and the villa has everything, apart from television, the satellite is no longer available.
The Garfagna is an area of outstanding natural beauty, the restaurants superb and very reasonable, try Il Pozzo.

Thank you for your review, and we are glad you loved the villa and the area! We are very sorry about the TV - this house had English TV, but the BBC and ITV have moved their satellites and it is no longer possible to get these channels. There are still some freeview satellite channels available and the owner has installed Italian TV so that major sporting events shown in Italy can hopefully still be seen.
