I'm writing a novel in which one of the settings is the Villa Romana in the Penghu Islands. I found it by an online search and described it in my story. At the time, I never expected to see it in person, but it happened and I'm so glad it did. I made two wonderful new friends, Maria and Andrew,... More

We staid at Villa Romana for three nights and we really loved it. It was great not only because of the amazing view (our rooms directly faced the sea), or because of the spacious and comfortable rooms, but also because of the very welcoming hosts, which made us feel like at home. Andrew and Maria have been very helpful recommending... More

Two of my friends and I made a last-minute trip to Penghu, and this was our first choice based on the overwhelmingly positive reviews on this site. Andrew, Maria, and Isabelle went above and beyond to make sure we had a great weekend (including helping us book rooms at another B&B because they were completely full the first night). When...

We booked this B&B based on the already existent reviews on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. We can confirm everything good that is already written about the Villa Romana and its owners. To be pointed out particularly are the extraordinary helpfulness and kindness of Andrew and Maria (the owners), the plentiful breakfast (both the continental and the taiwanese style) and... More

Andrew and Maria were the most gracious hosts. They helped us book tours and made suggestions as to where we should go for sightseeing. Our daughter got a little sick one evening after being out in the hot sun all day doing water sports and playing on the beach. The next day after we got back to the B&B, there... More

Found this lovely B&B through Trip Advisor, and had to book a room right away.

We stayed with our three children and aunt and uncle at Villa Romana for three nights.
