When we went through the front door we couldn't believe our eyes, the villa is huge and so chic ... the kind of place that is featured in a Vogue shoot... all white leather sofas and amazing art work... 4 big rooms and 3 bathrooms, so much outside space and the jasmine that surrounds the terrace smells divine.. is so beautiful. The owners were very helpful and the welcome platter of cheese and wine was just what we needed.
Can not recommend this place enough, and Marina di Ragusa is right on your door step... Loved it!!!
Great villa, huge amount of space.
Bedrooms: comfortable bed, pillows and linen. Pity no air con in single bedroom, as can't open window at night due to mosquitoes
Bathrooms: lots of loos and showers as can include those by pool, and water hot and plentiful. Shower door in main bath loose so let's water out and lock to door fell right off.
Kitchen and dining: lots of kit and space. All good
Pool: great pool with plenty of loungers too. Worried though by end of week as pool walls and floor had got progressively Ely more green. Mosquitos a BIG problem as soon as shades over - makes garden unusable after 6pm
Other: roof terrace is great - we spent every evening up there as outside and cool and no mosquitos - yet on arrival hosts did not show us it without us asking, even though is a big selling point in advertised photos
Arrival: messy! Why on earth is there no sign on gate???!!! Worst thing for hosts is for guests to arrive pissed off because they've driven around in a very small circle for 20 minutes not knowing which is right villa or entrance. I literally got out of car and walked up to gate and drove away again as no Villa Flora named on gate or post boxes. Also hosts - maybe sensing our sweaty frustration- were rather administrative rather than welcoming, stressing the rules rather than the benefits.
Beach: the villa is NOT a few metres from the sea, don't lie in your advertising!!! The localbeach is small and pleasant. BUT it is 500 metres away across derelict building on a dirt track with broken glass and happens to be a gay nudist beach. We were actually quite amused - others may have been horrified. Marina Di Ragusa and Playa Gande are both wonderful and contrasting beaches and the bars and restaurants of Marina Di Ragusa are superb - so even less reason to lie about the local place
Finally would be good if villa gave more local information promoting local towns, wineries etc. We had a wonderful week exploring.
