“A Lovely Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

We were a group of 7 and decided on this villa as my grandmother was coming with us and couldn't manage stairs and this villa has 3 downstairs bedrooms. It is a lovely villa - beautifully decorated and furnished. Unfortunately the lady who owns it couldn't speak any English so the only time we managed to successfully communicate was when we first arrived and she had brought along someone who could speak English. On arrival we received a complimentary bottle of her own wine which was gorgeous and we would have bought more off her if we had had the opportunity. Two things we weren't keen on was the close proximity of the lady's house to the villa, although we scarcely saw her so it turned out not to be a problem, and the fact that the pool was above ground and so seemed quite temporary. However it was lovely having the pool all to ourselves. One thing I will say is that the place could have been a bit cleaner. We had to clean the cutlery drawer out ourselves as it had old crumbs from previous tenants, and under the beds were rather dusty (we had stored our suitcases under them). But the bed linen was lovely and crisp and clean. We got our full deposit back (minus the final cleaning fee). WiFi was available some of the time. Overall we had a lovely time at Villa il Rocolo and would recommend it. Just make sure you have your own transport and local info (the tourist office in Arezzo is extremely helpful). Oh yes - one last thing. One has to leave the villa at 10 am to give them time to clean it for the next people coming. Unfortunately the lady was ready and waiting with her cleaners at 9 am which made us feel as though we were rushed out of the place. But she was fine apart from that.
