As you approach Rustica Progenie you are surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery - fields of sunflowers, vinyards, olive groves and some other farms converted into holiday accomodation - just beautiful. You then arrive at Rustica Progenie and again you are struck by the beauty of the place. Once you park your car and come back up to the courtyard, where local Olive Oil and Wines are for sale, you really think this is the start of a wonderfull stay.
We stayed in a "Studio" apartment on the ground floor - this was filthy, damp and full of mildew. All of the funiture and crockery was damaged, chipped or broken in some way and clearly discarded from the main house or collected from second hand stores. Our sofa bed was too old, lumpy, uneven and so damp it made the prestine white cotton sheets (supplied) damp in a matter of hours. When sleeping on this bed we needed to add blankets as we were so cold from the damp bed, not to mention the smell of damp and mildew. The fridge was so old it made a lot of very loud noise (turning on and off) throughout the night. There was one small window above head height and one glass door - hence the damp - this room never recieved any sunlight. The wardrobe consisted of a locked door way with a curtain across it. Through this locked door we could hear every word spoken in the next apartment, even the occupants snoring through the night.
The bathroom was filthy with a permanent smell of urine (regardless of use) - the shower curtain was too short and did not keep much water in the tray and there was no drain on the main floor for the excess water to drain way - so it has to be mopped up with a cloth after each use.
The promised garden/terrace consisted of what we first thouht was a very very (not big enough for a chair) small patio, but this turned out to be the drain way for the main drain pipe running of the roof of the main house. You then stepped up to a collection of pepples and weeds that was our garden that never recieved any sun, regardless of time of day.
We did not see any of the other accomodation so we don't know if we were just very unlucky with our allocation. What a missed opportunity as the surroundings are just beautiful with a lovely pool area - it just needs better attention to detail and no fear of spending a little money to make a lot.
