Overall, the villa was very comfortable and Rosado was a wonderful host.
While it was fully disclosed regarding the additional charges for the power and gas, I might suggest that this be added into the rental price. For the hot tub, renters should be given the option of being charged prior to arrival. For gas and electric, most travelers coming from the United States have a reasonable expectation that the rental fee covers these charges. While Rosado was very transparent about this on check in, estimating the amount of cash needed was difficult and for a 15 day stay and the amount of Euros needed far exceeded what any one person could have obtained from an ATM. I would also suggest that the owner be prepared to take credit cards for such charges, including the deposit.
Internet in the villa was very weak, with the signal confined to the first floor. Repeaters should be placed in the villa on each level so all occupants have access to internet. The television was placed in an awkward location on the main level. I might suggest to Rosado that he either move the TV into the living room, or switch the living and dinning room spaces. The living room furnishings seems a bit worn and eventually will need to be replaced. The stereo provided in the villa was very old and not in keeping with today's technology.
Overall, all occupants of the villa seemed very happy. The view was beautiful and there was plenty of space. I would recommend the villa for a future stay.
Den Spätsommer in diesem tollen Haus zu verbringen ist einfach nur schön! Wir wollten gar nicht mehr aus dem Schwimmbad herauskommen. Zu jeder Tageszeit kann man von hier aus einen tollen Blick über die Landschaft geniessen. Ausserdem ist Cortona schnell zu erreichen und auch der Lago Trasimeno ist einen Ausflug wert, denn hier gibt es u.a. auch Wassersport- Möglichkeiten. Guter Standort.
