We've just returned from a wonderful 2 week family holiday in this excellent villa. Beautifully located on a hillside, with so much space in the numerous outside seating areas that there never seemed to be 9 of us there! The villa grounds are very private so that, although there are neighbours, you are seldom aware of them.
The pool was perfect for adults and children (very safe size for the children and visible from most locations for supervision). We made great use of the variety of good quality, comfortable outdoor seating, the barbecue, outside bathroom, laundry and storage options.
Inside the villa is comfortable, and really well equipped with literally everything we needed. 'I wonder if there's a...... (anything from a corkscrew to an electric juicer)...' and there it was! The kitchen is small but adequate with good quality appliances and an endless supply of hot water.
The 5 bedrooms are comfortable with lots of storage space. The inside sitting area was seldom used by the adults but the children made good use of the TV (we brought a fire stick which proved very useful) for chilling after the pool and before bed, giving the adults some peace and quiet.
The only( minor) downsides we found were that a) the villa is located quite far from shops and restaurants up a very windy road, though there is seldom any traffic. We just did big shoppings each time we were out.
b) there are lots of mosquitoes (maybe worse because it was August?) so I'd advise going prepared with repellents, creams and cover up clothing for evenings.
Last, but far from least, Barry (the owner) is a lovely man, very friendly and helpful, always available by phone and called in a few times to clean the pool and helped with any questions we had (including how to pay our parking fine!). He even booked taxis for us a few times.
I'd highly recommend this villa for a relaxing, self sufficient holiday. We were a party of 5adults and 4 children, aged 5-9, and had a wonderful holiday!
Thanks again Barry!
We loved staying in this apartment that was comfortable and very well equipped - we are a a family of 5 with small children and enjoyed the surrounding area that was a peaceful respite from the coast. The local swimming pool was great - with a cafe beside it. Montblanc is only a 10 minute drive with good restaurants and markets. We would definitely recommend this place.
