We stayed in the Francesca self catering apartment at Villa Maria for a week. Villa Maria is about 10 or 15 minutes walk from the centre of Riva. It is 10 minutes or so walk from a couple of supermarkets and the bus station is a very short walk away. There is also a convenient cycle shop just up the road from the Villa Maria where they offer a discount to guests for cycle hire.
Villa Maria is run by Marco who we found to be very pleasant and always helpful. We drove to Riva and although the car parking at Villa Maria is adequate, it can be a bit tight. There is additional parking nearby if required however.
Although the decor and fixtures and fittings in the apartment were quite plain and basic, we found it comfortable and well equipped. There is free wi fi, a microwave cooker, induction hob and good size fridge-freezer, although we always ate out at night. There is air conditioning but there were times when for me this could have done with being set to a slightly lower temperature, particularly at night. Not bad though. The bathroom was a good standard. Standards of cleanliness were high with the apartment being cleaned and towels changed at least every two days. There is a lift to the apartments if needed.
Overall we were impressed with the value for money offered by our apartment which enabled us to enjoy a really reasonable, good value holiday. We had a very pleasant, comfortable stay at the Villa Maria apartment and hope to return.
