Location, location, location it doesn’t get better

Location, location, location it doesn’t get better than this. I was so surprised to arrive here and find such a lovely villa in such a superb location. We all spent many hours on the sun terraces enjoying the beautiful sea view. The swimming pool was excellent, secluded away in the hillside with the most amazing views of the mountains and sea. Peter and Alison obviously read the reviews and act quickly, we found the villa spotlessly clean with lots of extra towels, and a new larger barbeque. The cleaner was so kind, she even gave us fresh eggs laid that day. We rented a villa for fourteen days and were very pleased with the facilities, which were perfect for a family of five. The privacy and facilities within the villa were very good. There is also a supermarket just a short drive away , which was very well stocked. This is without any doubt one of the best holiday villas we have visited. The Villa was exceptional. There isn't anything negative I can say. We all had the most fantastic time. We are sad we cannot stay here forever! Looking forward to returning next year, thank you.

Lovely views and pool. Recommended

4 of 5
We had a relaxing week in Casa Rossa, April was most helpful and easy to communicate with prior to commencing our holiday. When we arrived, it's a little difficult to find, but, Yvonne was on hand to assist and the welcome pack meant a well stocked fridge. The villa is large with high ceilings. The views from the villa are spectacular and the weather was mixed during our stay, but always hot (the A/C was very welcome at night). The pool was large and very clean. The pool attendant was in attendance throughout the mornings of our stay and was very entertaining. Great fun. There are several very nice beaches locally, just a short drive from the villa. Good local facilities, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and quaint Italian villages in the hills.
