“Dont go!!!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

The house looks beautiful from the outside and the garden is well kept, but thats unfortunately the only thing that is good in this place.

on this note my family is half Italian all of us speak fluent italian.

We stayed for 2 weeks (3 adults and 1 infant), but already after the second night we started to smell mold in the apartment. didn´t think too much about it until everyone started to have breathing problems, sneezing, headaches etc.

My wife´s brother came down (from other part of Italy to visit us) and there was bed for 5 people we thought that he could stay with us for a couple of nights but on the next day when my wife´s mother went to the owner (man) to ask if it was ok, or do we have to pay extra, he started to yell and was REALLY rude and aggressive. He said things witch are not printable in here, especially towards an elderly lady.
After that he behaved really arrogantly, and rudely towards us, he even said to us that we are free to leave anytime we want, witch I can´t understand since we payed lot of money for 2 weeks stay. You could just feel the hostility,They had video surveillance and you could just see how they were watching everything happening on their yard they even went to the extent of trying to ruin our laundry by dropping old pizza from their window (witch was conveniently located directly above us).

other stuff:

Kitchen was poorly equipped you couldn't cook more than pasta.
Pluming dind´t work if you took a shower, next one had to wait at least 30 minutes before using it.
The internet was a joke, I tried with speedtest.net and it gave me 1meg/sec

Note: Their house rules (attachment in the confirmation email that comes after you paid) says that nobody is allowed on the property who hasn´t rented an apartment (not even family members).

I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy.

They ruined most of our well deserved holiday
I never in my life met people like these.

We stayed in the newly-refurbished apartment on the top floor. Everything was new, stylish and clean, and it was very well-equipped, for the most part. The day after we arrived, there was a knock on the door and a woman (I think, the wife of the owner, but I'm not too sure!) handed over a beautifully-wrapped package of mini-pastries "per i bambini" (for our 3 children). Nice surprise!

The only negative points were that our balcony was a bit of a strange arrangement, as the owner was able to walk at the front of it, through our space, as it were, without warning. So, not completely private. Also, the window behind our bed didn't seem very secure and had a sheer drop outside. We mentioned this to the owner as we were worried not only about our toddler, but other kids who might stay here in future, but we ended up securing the window with a pair of baby reins for the duration of the holiday.

The flat is very central - one block from the main pedestrian street of Lignano, and it was an easy walk out after dinner for our passegiatta. Easy to cook in the flat - the only things missing were a chopping board and a breadknife, but we coped!
