The view and scenery were amazing and the outside space was fabulous (house was welcoming and we enjoyed staying there). Luigi (owner) was incredibly welcoming and helpful - sorting out requests immediately and replacing a broken dishwasher within an afternoon (unbelievable service!!). Thank you for a great holiday and for looking after us. We loved the area and location and the house suited us down to the ground - everything we required. We had a great holiday. Thank you.

It has a lot going for itself (huge space, lovely garden, lots of shade, big-size well-maintained swimming pool) but investment is needed in some areas. Our youngsters were very disappointed that the diving board in the photos (at the time of booking) was missing. There were issues with electricity in the shared kitchen near the pool (power outage and dangerous loose sockets). Some basic equipment like water cooker or a good coffee machine were missing. Deck chairs were weathered, many cracked and no mattresses provided. The bbq was thoroughly rusty and basically unusable; we had to buy a new rack. It is close to a road which is during the day very quiet but has more traffic between 7-9 AM, interfering with sleep in some bedrooms. There is no wifi and reception is weak. There were some issues with plumbing. Overall we had a wonderful time but for a luxury villa of this price the owner (we have not seen Mr Guido Bauduin) should make some improvements. We mentioned these issues to him (the Italian owner) but our criticism was basically rejected.

La gentillesse et la discrétion des propriétaires est à souligner. La maison était propre à notre arrivée et la piscine nettoyée à de nombreuses reprises durant notre séjour. La région est chouette. La maison est située à une centaine de kms de Rome. Il est donc très facile de s'y rendre (route ou train). Les restaurants dans le coin sont pas mal. A conseiller vraiment !
