We stayed in the Villa 13 nights. It was recommended to us by the friends who stayed there last year. There are 3 rooms at the first floor and 3 at the ground floor. Everything described in review from 2003 is absolutely true. Swimming pool is perfectly clean, rooms are
cleaned every day and towells are changed. Beds are big and comfortable. Even the price hasn't changed (EUR 65 for double room). You can also get w discount in case of longer stays. In our opinion the standard in the Villa is like 3-4 star hotel (comparing to hotel we stayed in Rome, close to Coloseum). No doubt it's worth the price! The host (extremely nice lady) speaks English very little. Breakfast is not available (even at extra charge), but you can either go for breakfast to local trattorias or prepare something using the kitchen (common for all rooms). The Villa exceeded our expectations, we loved it and we hope to come back there.
