“Very quiet, peaceful location, poorly maintained.”

We stayed here for two weeks June/ July with our children and grandson. Olive Grove Farm is in a very quiet, peaceful location. If you seek a quiet, relaxing break it's for you. However, when we arrived the house was very dirty, uncleaned bathrooms, hundreds of spiders and cobwebs, cutlery and crockery on kitchen table littered with dead flies. Swimming pool not maintained so needed masses of work to achieve acceptable test standard. No beds made on arrival just stacks of tired, un ironed bed linen, never encountered this before in our numerous rentals! A shame because this could be a good rental but there appears to be no attention to detail, lots of half finished projects and a complete lack of maintenance. The owner refunded us some money for the problems we suffered which was nice but we would rather have found a clean, well run property, properly maintained.
A proper pool maintenance, cleaning and laundry service needs to be organised to make this property acceptable for holiday letting.

We have to rely on the cleaners which come in both immediately before and after a guest visit. Further outgoing guests should ensure generally clean before final departure as we have always done. Guests are told 9as ere they cleaners to put everything back in the cupboards - nothing should be left out. There have been many visitors who have loved Olive Grove Farm but unfortunately many do not bother to leave a blog -it is just the ones that complain. We changed the cleaners soon after this visit

We have a cleaner come before and after a booking but spiders webs are a problem in the country remove them and they are back in a day! Also the pool is cleaned every week, however can get very high winds occasionally that can cause a lot of leaves to be blown in. There are two auto cleaners for the pool. Not sure re comment re bedding - there should have been none left out - maybe it was the bedding covers. We do use this as our home also when guests are not present.

The internet was working when I left but my payment by Italian PayPal was returned to PayPal for some reason at a later date and thus Internet stopped.

The access road has at last been repaired by the Commune - it was a little bumpy but not dangerous. There was also one of the beams on the kitchen purgula that was semi broken. Must have been a wind. Was ok in August. Now repaired.
