We arrived in the evening of the 31st October for the start of our 3-week holiday, finding the villa without issue. (The area is next to the Medieval Castle on the 192) We have stayed in that area once before at another Villa, owned by the same lovely people, so we know the area a little) Also very close to Walmart and Aldi and plenty of places to eat out locally too.
The Villa itself is well presented, clean and has everything you would need for an extended stay, including dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, microwave, iron, ironing board and even a pool table in the garage. What we did like was the electric lock option to the front door as well as the key safe, meaning we didn’t run the risk of losing a key during our busy days.
The pool is south facing and comes with a hot tub too, the heating was well worth the money, especially at the time of year we went.
The master bedroom is on-suite (with double sinks, shower and bath), the bedroom also leads on to the pool area, there is also a roomy walk in wardrobe. The main area of the villa is open plan and enough seating in the living area for everyone. The 2 other bedrooms share a bathroom. The hall leading to these rooms houses the washing machine and dryer. We would have preferred them to be in the garage as they are noisy in use, so we could not use them at night. (We just set them going when we left the villa)
We did have an issue with the pool heating but wasn’t sure if it was us just being “fragile and temperature sensitive” so took us a couple of days to mention it to the owners. Once we did mention it though, the management company turned up very quickly to sort it out. Once it was, we knew the heating was working as it should have done. It was great watching the sun rise whilst in the pool and indeed watching it set on the opposite side of the pool at night.
As I’ve said before, a Villa is a Villa, most are pretty much of the same standard as required for the number of guests they are for. However, for me and my family, what makes the massive difference here are the owners. They genuinely want you to have the best time you can have, to enjoy the Villa and to make use of its amenities. They are very eager to get feedback and ask for improvement ideas. It is the owners that make a Villa stand out from other Villas of the same standard. This is an area that Marie & Gary excel. We have used their Villas twice and will be returning to this one later in the year. For me, if someone uses them more than on
Fantastic villa. Would not hesitate in booking this villa again. Everything you need is in the villa. It is very Clean. Not too far from all the attractions. Supermarket close by. 2 adults and 2 kids - a lot more relaxing than staying in a hotel.
