Ok we stayed at Villa Dei Fisici recently and from afar it looks great but up close ; it needs upkeep! The bedroom ceilings need to be redone as there is some black stuff on them and with the intricate paintwork , no way they can be pressure washed! There are a couple of light fixtures partially pulled out of wall with exposed wires and the fake flowers in the boat on the main floor and throughout the villa need to be replaced. Don;t get me wrong , the views are fabulous BUT even the outside areas of villa need to be repainted and patched for numerous cracks , etc! For the prices they charge they should really take better care of this place because it should be gorgeous. UPSIDE ; FABIO ....he cooked three incredible dinners for us and is marvelous , make sure to request him and hope the villa never loses him , because he is great!
