I've enjoyed my stay here. My room was nothing fancy but clean but the hospitality of the owners is something extraordinary. You feel like home and they help you to plan your trips. Breakfast was homemade including fresh juices and different options every day. Delicious. Very personal and warm place.

My wife and I spend just a night at Villa Shade and we wished we would have stayed longer. The room we stayed was great and overlooking a nice garden. Next morning, breakfast in the garden and very nice conversation with the owner. We loved the personal touch. A place to recommend. Vincent N. (Singapore)

We stay there for just one night, arriving so late. When we arrived the hotel, what waiting for us is two cups of cool juice which relieved our summer-heat very much. We enjoyed breakfast in a beautiful sunny morning with the birds warbling on the grass ground of the hotel. The service of the stuff is so good, and everybody... More

Hosts were so very lovely and wish I had stayed with them on way through as they are so eager to share tips on what to see and do. Rooms are great value and spacious. I had to leave very early and they packed a little breakfast for me to take to the airport - very sweet!

Even though we stayed at a good hotel at the seaside for a few days during this trip, my son still regards Villa Shade as the place he likes the best. And I agree with... More
