“All the comforts of home, plus the weather!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This villa certainly lived up to its name! Fantastic views over countryside to the sea in the far distance. The villa was as described and we found it to have everything we needed during our stay. The main bedroom has an en-suite and a balcony.The other two bedrooms (a double and a quad) are furnished in the same style and have fully opening windows giving the same view. There was only 4 of us in the villa but the maximum of 8 would not have been a problem, especially if 4 were children and were happy to share a room.

The pool is perfect for cooling off on hot days and we did not experience any lack of mains electricity or water during our stay. All the appliances worked fine, including the air con which we used late evenings.

The booking process was very straightforward and we were provided with very professional looking leaflets and a booklet before we arrived giving instructions and tips. Very useful - especially the Lat/Long co-ordinates, a sat nav is recommended when visiting! As are nerves of steel when driving in Italy generally!

The local town of Albanella has the basics (ATM, Shops, Garage) but supermarkets are 10 mins away and have everything you need. Our favourite visits were to Paestum (30 mins), Pompeii (90 mins) and Castellabate (60 mins). Also the Buffalo ice-cream at Tenuta Vannulo, on the SS18!

We would certainly recommend this villa, it is of a very good standard and managed well. We have stayed at other villas in Italy but this has been of the best standard.

Management Response
Oct 29, 2012
Obviously, we are always keen to hear feedback, and we are sorry to hear that Villa Con Vista did not meet our guest’s expectations on this particular occasion.

Prior to this, we had no serious problems with the air conditioning units, and they have operated faultlessly since. Being in a secluded and rural part of Italy, 48 Hours to have the air conditioning unit attended to and fixed we feel is actually very good. Clearly we would have preferred this not to happen in the first place, but as with any house with electrical appliances, despite regular maintenance, these things very occasionally happen.

The local commune (council) controls the water supply in the area, and sometimes regulates to private residences during exceptionally hot summers, at night when required.

We provide all of our guests with our home and personal mobile numbers. We are always happy to take guests' calls and would have been happy to explain how to switch over to the alternate water supply if this was required

Just arrived back from a week at the Villa Con Vista...Great. The Villa is amazing, it is set on a hill side up a quiet secluded track among olive,fig and lemon trees,surrounded by isolated farms with goats chickens and buffalo. If your looking for a break away from it all this is it!
The Villa is large well presented with all mod cons, a well equipped modern kitchen oven hob,large freezer-fridge, micro wave etc, spacious lounge area with TV, DVD,CD and WI FI.....Three large bedrooms, 1 en suite Double, 1 Double and a bedroom with 4 single beds,..the villa has three showers (1 in ensuite) and 3 toilets.
Shopping locally is good...Albanella has a well stocked super market, a butchers that cut food to order....a chemist, fruit sellers etc....it is a small, quiet village in an area of Italy that has escaped the ravages of tourism..close by there are larger shops (Carrefoure) etc
We used the out door barbeque and sat outside under the clear star filled skies, till the early hours with various glasses of local wines (excellent and cheap lol) listening to the crickets and watching the amazing hoards of fire flies dancing in the darkness..wonderful!
We visited Pompei, Sorrento, Paestrum and Acropoli in a hired Vito Mercedes 'Appy Bus'
BUT! be warned driving in Italy is an experience........don't take road markings, signs, warnings etc literally as it seems the Italians make it up as they go along ha!
In conclusion the Villa Con Vista is 'Fantastic' and presented by the owners exceptionally well..It is Ideal for unwinding and taking it easy.......
