I feel I must add to the comments that have been left on here by those of you that visited this fantastic villa and have thoroughly enjoyed yourselves. I have been to this villa 12 times now in the past 9 years and I will continue to return here every year till the villa no longer exists.
However I do get annoyed when I read the negative comments. Most of the negative feedback is about cost. How can anyone expect to travel to such a fantastic location and not pay for it. The saying goes " you get what you pay for!" and the villa certainly is value for money. If you want a cheap holiday go to Butlins or Centre Parks!
The owners of the villa Paolo and Philip couldnt be better hosts. They are always on hand to help in any situation. They join in the two evening dinners, Tuesdays and Fridays, where all the occupants get together and get to know one another!. Paolo is a great cook, I have never had a bad meal there and if you're still hungry there is always some homemade cake available or biscotti. The honesty bar is reasonable too. All in all a great place to unwind from hectic working life.
See you soon Paolo and Philip,
P.S. if you feel generous, I dont mind you leaving me the villa in your wills!!!! :) :)
