In winter the location does not look great, but do not be deceived. Once you have been warmly welcomed by the hosts, Silvia & Jürgen, & shown your room & the amenities, the grey-brown surroundings fade into nothing.
My room was wonderful, large (junior suite) with minimal furnishings but just right, great bathroom w a very large shower & big bath tub. As with the rest of the Country House Villa Rey, my room has been remoddeled in a most tasteful manner. Large high ceilings with wooden beams & floors giving a rustic atmosphere but with modern comforts.
The staff are unobtrusive (to the point of being shy) but are always present giving excellent service & what is most important they do so with a genuine smile. It's not just a job for them! Between the chef & Silvia we experienced haute cuisine Italian style, but not just the known Italian dishes - every dinner was a new experience to the palate. Congratulations to the two of them.
Finally the reason for my visit to Villa Rey - mountain biking. The guides / hosts certainly have a done a lot of work to recconoiter the surrounding countryside & know every path, trail & non-trail thta one could want to ride. It is a demanding terraine in which to bike, but very satisfying. One can always take the 'soft' route on the way home at the end of the day or drop into a friendly café. Thanks for the great rides!
Villa Rey must be awsome in the late summer / autumn when one can also enjoy the pool and neverending views across the valley. Must come & check this out¨
Thank you Silvia, Jürgen & your wonderful Team Villa Rey - good luck for 2011 season!
