Beauty Beach Villa is located directly on a public beach, at the end of a private road, which we found after a phone call to Francesco the owner. We could park our car directly inside.
We were greeted for an early check in, with a choice between the 2 available rooms, #1 and #4. Both looked great, room #1 a bit smaller but also more unique with the large shower directly behind the bed head.
The room, as well as the whole facility, is inspired by simple and very elegant Italian design. It is also practically very comfortable. The bed is large and firm. Room is fully sound and light proof. AC worked well. There is also a wine cellar fridge, which we were invited to use immediately as we were offered by our host a bottle of Primitivo. The room has a large semi-private balcony in the form of a shared courtyard with cactus dividing the space between the rooms. On the minus side some people may be uncomfortable with the fact that the toilet is not in a closet - it can be somewhat sheltered by opening the shower door.
The Villa is located directly on a public beach, which was very crowded. There are however multiple small beaches and coves around that are much quieter. We decided on the first day to enjoy the beach from the Villa. It is well protected from the mass, with high walls. Yet there is an upper sun deck with loungers, sofas and large protective parasols, directly overlooking the beach and the sea. Also there are outside showers, large Fatboy hammocks and a jacuzzi, to provide overall ultimate comfort. The sea is crystal blue and very appropriate for swimming, with sand bottom and a sand beach. During our stay the water was as calm as a lake.
Service from Francesco and his small team is also extraordinary. While we are relaxing on the sun deck he will come regularly with supplies of water, fruits, cakes, or any form of home made snacks. It is also possible to have bottles of wine and proseco in ice buckets. We just felt like in heaven... The Villa does not act as a restaurant but from time to time they will prepare lunch or a special dinner party. The lunch came as a surprise menu, with a series of tapas and a pasta, simple but delicious. Breakfast is equally fantastic, with a large selection of cakes, juices, ham, cheese, etc. For dining out Francesco has a large selection of recommendations. We tried the Marea (see separate review), which was exactly as he had described it, with excellent fish, expect it came out a bit more expensive. He was also very flexible with early check in and check out time - leaving us with a generous selection of cakes for the early morning departure.
Altogether we had a perfect stay. It was also quite affordable. All the snacks provided during day time were free. Wine was very reasonably priced (15 to 30 euro), the lunch also at 20 euro. As an additional touch, Francesco rounded down the final tab.
Will very happily return !
