“Beautiful views, pool great. Road access appalling. Need sturdy 4x4.”
Reviewed August 15, 2016 for a stay in August 2016


A lovely house in a stunning secluded hill top setting.
BUT the access "road" is an unadopted loose gravel pitted and very deeply rutted track. A normal city vehicle cannot get up this and it's a 1:4 1:5 climb to boot. About a kilometre down to nearest road.
We had to get into negotiations for compensation for the huge inconvenience of trying to walk up and down this track with shopping / luggage etc.
Cars were damaged.
It means you can't pop out quickly for anything. And you're meant to carry rubbish down the hill as rubbish isn't collected.

Amenities are mixed. The electricity cannot cope with several showers and ovens on at once. Good luck finding the trip switch.
No air con or fans in rooms. This is a problem in high season.

Wifi has just been installed August 2016 - which was welcome. But there's no house phone and mobile phone signal of course is patchy in such a remote location.

Service from managers is fine - Michela (who also is a tourist guide at the abandoned and beautiful mine at the bottom of the hill) tries her hardest to help and will organise local restaurants to make food for you.

Weirdly if you have a full house - there's no living area inside if weather turns. There are several kitchens though none that can accommodate everyone.

There are just about enough glasses and crockery.

Pool side beds have no cushions..

It would be nice if they left basics like salt, pepper, herbs, oil - as you waste time and effort buying much you can't use but would be really useful to have. Obviously previous occupiers would have bought, but cleaners must remove.

On the plus side, the pool is absolutely gorgeous and view unsurpassed.

The terrace is excellent and communal outside table is fabulous for al fresco eating.

Overall about half of this place feels luxury - the pool, the views, the decor.

The other half can really put a dampener on it unless you have a chunky 4x4 and ability to do local electrics and sleep in very hot rooms. (Mosquitos prevent open windows)

The price however is luxury.
