A spacious ground floor of a villa on a hill overlooking the town. Our hosts were very welcoming - Anna was happy to assist in any way. We used the train and Anna gave us a lift to and from the station. Recommended.
As two retired couples, we had booked this property many months earlier, and forgotten some of the details. So we were surprised at there being two self-contained apartments. We should have re-read about it before we arrived! Anyway, having got used to the idea of separate properties, it became obvious that the lower (larger) one is best used for sleeping only, as the top one is where the pool and barbeque-kitchen is. There's plenty of choice of terraces, if you "want to be alone".
Everything you want is there. Comfy beds, excellent showers/bathrooms, large bath sheets, good quality kitchen equipment, fans (which we needed in temperatures of 28deg.C!). Excellent quiet position with lovely views. And all very clean!
Extra bedding would have been useful - the duvets provided were fine, but too warm in the heatwave, and there were no sheets or light blankets (we took the duvet out of its cover and used that). It would also be a good idea to supply pool towels, as most places do these days.
There were one or two small issues to start with, but Anne-Brit was very helpful in sorting these out, so good for her.
What seemed to be missing was an information folder on how the property works: washing machine and TV instructions, for instance. Even the dishwasher was a type we wern't used to, so it was trial and error. And we never did find out how to use the outdoor gas rings! Most places we have stayed in have such a guide.
One thing which puzzled us was the instruction to turn off the fridge before leaving. This meant we arrived late in the day with a bootful of shopping, with the need to put perishables in a cool fridge, but this wasn't possible. Perhaps this instruction ought to be rethought?
But, a lovely property and one we really enjoyed staying in, and would be happy to return to.
