We planned this big family holiday one year in advance and had high hopes for this villa. There were 14 of us in the party over a large age range. Where do I start? Directions were awful as apparently new junctions have been built but not notified to us. We arrived at 2am instead of estimated at 8pm, not a good start.
All seemed well the next morning, although daylight offered a rather different picture of a run down interior. Air con did not work at all, and we also had to buy wine glasses and coffee mugs. The swimming pool went green after 4 days and the pool cleaner said that he wouldn't let his children swim in it as it was a health hazard. After several different pool cleaner trips over the next week, it was still a write off and stayed that way until we left; not good when you have very hot young children in the party.
The boiler packed up with 3 days to go so we had no hot water to wash in or a pool to cool off!
As far as being 10 minutes stroll from the nearest...
