A truly unspoiled gem
The Villa was magnificent with original features. The views were breathtaking. The rooms are large and nicely furnished and the see can be seen from all the rooms in the villa. Nice outdoor area accessible to kitchen which is well equipped. The owner is very helpful and on site for any problem. A couple of glitches were taken care of immediately. There is a supermarket very nearby in which all the shopping from fresh to cooked to drinks and more can be found. The location is great and there is access to great restaurants both in Italy and France. We enjoyed the boat trip which could be organised separately. Everything was informal and restful. The host/owner family were charming and could speak English which was an advantage. The villa is very famous locally.
The views are amazing, the location is great, the host was there for any questions. The house is a 16th century tower so it doesn't have all the modern amenities but it was what we were looking for. It could get a little loud at night with the windows open- traffic and some kind of club with music. The hosts are just starting to rent this villa out so it was missing some amenities which they gladly asked us about so they can add them in. Overall we had a wonderful stay.
Thank you very much for your nice review! We are very happy that you have enjoyed so much your stay at Villa Corinna which has just started to open its doors to the public. Regarding your point about the music, that was not coming from a nearby club but it was just a private wedding party in a villa on the hill. The position of Villa Corinna as you know is very well secluded from the village and any public places. We hope to welcome you soon again if you come back soon!
