Great Vacation in Italy
Me and my relatives ( 7 persons + a baby) stayed a week in this Villa in June 2012. The villa itself is beautiful, the garden and the pool area are well kept and gorgeous. The villa is situated in a small hill, and it is a steep rise with a car. The area is surrounded with a fence .You can have 2-3 cars in the frontyard if needed. An automatic gate tho the villa is situated so that getting in and out with a car was quite difficult within the small space near the gate, we managed though:).The location is great for exploring Cinque Terre, Garfaganana, Pisa, Lucca, Florence.The beach is only 8 km away and can be seen from the hill.
There are 2 bedrooms upstairs, same floor as the pool, one of them with a king size bed, other with queen size I think.Both of these rooms are very nice and modern and have a nice view.These is also one bathroom with a tub between them, also with a view. The living room and the dining table outside are great! The only little minus was there is no shower curtain in the tub, so if you use it as a shower, there is water all over the bathroom.That is only a small detail and with a smaller company will not be an issue:).
Downstairs there is a kitchen with dining table, also very nice, the only thing we didn't find were scissors:) Next to the kitchen there is a small living room with tv. We thought that the tv could have been upstairs, since now with the kitchen and the tv downstairs, we really didn't use the upstairs living room, which is much more spacious than the one downstairs. Then again we were there at the time on football european championship games, so had it not been that time, we wouldn't have watched the tv that much anyway:). There are 2 small nicely furnished bedrooms with twin beds in this floor.These are under ground level, so there is no view from the small windows and sometimes a little problem with moisture. However, the villa has a machine that takes away moisture, as well as air conditioning and heating. The villa also has a baby bed and a highchair.
The land lady is lovely and helpful. Wireless internet didn't work when we arrived, but she got it working very soon and will help you with any problems you may have.
All in all I would say, that the pictures of the villa were very truthful and the villa was as nice as we thought it would be. The garden area was even more beautiful and bigger than we thought. I would recommend this villa for everyone looking for a great location and upscale accomodation!
Owner's Response: Dear Guest,
Thank you for your review and kind words about our villa. These reviews help us to improve the house even further. As with all things you want to deliver as good as possible: "the devil is in the detail" and we appreciate all feed back we receive and we will certainly address the issues where possible.
With respect to your remark on the TV. We have contemplated to put it upstairs when thinking about the best place, but opted for the family room, connected to the kitchen, in stead. Main reason being, for families with smaller children you might want to keep en eye on, the kids can be around when preparing the meals. As you mentioned, if there is no football one might generally prefer to be on the lounge or diner terraces or near the pool to enjoy outside living at its best.
We are thankful for your recommendation and your qualification of the house as an upscale accommodation and hope we may welcome you again as our guest.
With kind regards,
