You’ll definitely need a GPS to navigate to this hotel. I suggest arriving when the light is still out because the villa is located in the middle of a farm where street light is sparse and no signs for direction.
After arriving at the front of the Villa, separated by a gate I couldn't find a way to get in. I tried pushing the one of many door bells on the wall without any response. I had to call the villa to have someone to open the gate for me to get in. I was told to park my car in the courtyard. The hostess was very nice and friendly. She spoke a little bit of English and was very pleasant to talk to. I was given a large room on the first floor within the courtyard. The room was huge and homey. There was a small stove and real fireplace where wood was ready available. The weather was quite cold in February and the furnaces kept the room warm. Bathroom was adequate with a washing machine available. Overall, the room was very homey and quiet.
There were bicycles available to use at no charge to ride into the city or around the back of the Villa. It was very peaceful strolling in the park. I was told it’s 2 kilometers around the park. There was a large pond in the back with geese and ducks. Quiet, peaceful, and a place to get away from it all.
There is no restaurant in the villa but breakfast is served. There is no checkout. I was told to just leave the key in the room and I can leave whenever I wish.
