Every year we come to vila rosa for 2 weeks to our favorite room # 7. The staff is very friendly and professional. The breakfast is very satisfying. I even get my preferred yogurt to my table. The feeling is of a small family.

The breakfast room was itself a haven before beginning the day, and the staff was always polite and charming. The Villa Rosa... More

We enjoyed the homeliness of Villa Rosa, which has a lot of character, tastefully decorated. Everyone was very helpful and welcoming, and the room was very comfortable. Also conveniently situated, in a pleasant area.
