Another excellent stay at Villa Costa, my 5th so far.  I also have a further 2 trips already booked for next year, which speaks volumes for this hotel and the lovely food, quality wine and wonderfully warm hospitality received from owner Mario and his mother Sofia.  They really do work extremely hard to make sure that your stay is memorable....

Wonderful place to stay, a really relaxing private hotel. We were made to feel welcome by the staff and other guests from the moment we arrived. The room was lovely and overlooked the pool area. The food was excellent and Theo makes wonderful cocktails which are lovely to have as pre-dinner/after dinner drinks. If you go, you must stay for... More

We have just returned from a week at the Villa Costa. Despite scoring average in some areas, we had a lovely holiday. This was because the location is gorgeous, the views stunning, the peace and calm very welcome and the other guests were great company. However there were a number of things that could have been better, some much better... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Costa. We stayed in Persephone and had a wonderful sea view. It was great to have tea and coffee-making facilities in the room, along with a fridge and a couple of plates and a few bits of cutlery so that we could make up a scratch lunch if we wanted to. Towels and... More

Just back from our 3rd stay at the fantastic Villa Costa where we spent a fortnight relaxing and enjoying Mario's wonderful hospitality. I have reviewed twice before and there really isn't anything further to add other than this is a unique place to stay; for the fortnight we are there we feel that we have been welcomed into Mario &...

My husband and I have been to Villa Costa twice. Most recently being July. To be honest I don't usually review Villa Costa as I don't want everybody to know about it!, it's a little hidden gem that I want to keep for myself. We had an amazing time from start to finish. The food is amazing!. For breakfast you... More

We have just returned from our third annual holiday in a row at Villa Costa. And yes indeed, the living was very easy. Biggest decision of the day is probably 'pool or beach', although when the beach is literally across the road, a blend of the two each day is what we tend to prefer. So much has been said... More
