We stayed one week at Templeberg over Christmas/New Year 2013. Our party was 6 adults and 4 children, and the villa fitted us perfectly. The staff are very kind and accommodating. The two staff tuk-tuk drivers are great - you can go anywhere at anytime with them, no problem. The lovely ladies in the kitchen cooked us spectacular breakfasts and dinners every day, which was very decadent. The villa's decor is very stylish yet relaxed, so we didn't feel as though the children couldn't play.
We will definitely return to Templeberg Villa to visit Karin and the wonderful staff very soon.
