“Italian spacious splendour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Our first impression of the villa as we drove through the automated gates was amazing. The size and layout was perfect for our holiday which included 11 adults. The weather was beautiful for the whole week so we did not need to use the grand sitting rooms, but simply walking through them en route to our rooms was a lovely experience. Both the family and professional kitchens were well equipped and spacious. The outside covered eating area was well used throughout our stay, providing much needed shade for those who needed it during the day and a great place to eat together in the evening. The pool was great, with a few sun loungers but no umbrellas unfortunately in the pool area, which meant that those in our group who preferred the shade were on the opposite side of the pool from the sunseekers. There also seemed to be too much chlorine in the pool which caused some of our group to have sore eyes. The upper terrace had comfortable furniture and a large umbrella, and we sat out there every evening after dinner to chat or play games. The bedrooms were large and comfortable. A few problems with the size and efficiency of some of the showers and fittings, also a lack of toilet paper, even after requesting some from the maid who visited 4 times during the week and didn't seem to notice that we were running low. (We had to buy some of our own). The villa is just a few minutes walk away from the centre of town and about a 5 minute drive from the supermarket, although there is a mini supermarket in the town. The little pizza place opposite the mini market is great for a snack and a beer, very friendly and relaxed. The trains which run along in front of the villa can be loud but generally they did not affect our enjoyment. All in all a lovely place to stay.
