Having booked a double room with villa antea, arriving with anticipation of whether the room will live up to our expectations, we should not have worried !! Everything was better than the reviews mentioned.
Room 13 !!??!! has a great view of the river entrance to the port, ship enthusiasts will not be disappointed since you have a clear view across to the bridge and can watch small local boat, local area island hopper ferries or huge cruise liners on a daily basis, but we didn't hear them arrive or leave !!
The room has everything a self catering holiday could ask for ... never mind the essentials of a terrace with a view, the ensuite bathroom, the fridge for cooling the wine and beers .. but international TV (if you REALLY want to keep up with business and headlines), free WIFI connection throughout, kettle, toaster and even complete cutlery and crockery.
The complex boasts an infinity dip pool on the roof, too cold for my liking in May but was certainly popular for a relaxing tired feet at the end of a busy day walking around the sights. The poolside loungers and terrace furniture were also popular in the afternoon, sitting around having a relaxing drink in the sun, if the wind gets up a little just move inside to more terrace furniture with a great view over the river and estuary entrance.
The local bus number 6 picks up and drops off within 1 minutes walk from villa antea and drops you at the old town gates where most of the tourist areas are ... who could ask for more ?? Skipping the tourist ares after a few days you have plenty of walking routes close by that take you around the peninsula and down to the promenade through some striking scenery.
DIMIR works hard manning the reception between 14:00 and 21:00 but is always there with information, willing to chat, make reservations on trips for you, even if they are not the ones they recommend.
Self catering means shopping at a supermarket, TOMMYS is always recommended down in the town but we found the smaller supplies shop in the close by camping site had everything we wanted and their prices were pretty much the same.
Certainly good value for money, a well maintained complex and happy staff .... apart from the wooden floors making it impossible for people to be quiet leaving or arriving back in the early hours ... you would find it difficult to complain about VILLA ANTEA !!!
