Comments from Owner Guestbook

Absolutely excellent! The standard of build, the facilities and the location were lovely. The design layout of the units ensured total privacy so that we were never aware or disturbed by our neighbours. The grounds were lovely with lots of different plants which encouraged wildlife and were well looked after. The views were just spectacular!

Great stay

  • 4 of 5
The villa itself is really lovely, one of the nicest I have seen. Beautifully furnished and plenty of space for 2 or 4. We found the property very hot on a night as we were there during a very warm spell, and there were so many mosquitoes that we couldn’t open any windows. Very surprised that there were no insect screens on the windows - this seems to be a must if no air con. Even the use of a fan would have been a welcome addition! The bedrooms are both cooler by virtue of being downstairs and we had plenty of space etc. The living dining area, kitchen and large balcony were all beautiful and well equipped. Every kitchen utensil etc you could think of plus we borrowed a BBQ. The view from the balcony is gorgeous and we ate in nearly every night. We were very frustrated to be told several times about an "easy" walk down to the village (rather than going the long way around on the road) which either doesn't exist or has now become so overgrown that it is indecipherable. We love to walk rather than get in the car every day and this was a big down side for us. The property owner should invest in clearing the pathway and putting up some signs/arrows and giving maps in the rooms. We got lost several times, had cut legs and feed and were bitten to bits. The village itself is really lovely and we enjoyed many an afternoon having a glass of wine outside the small, friendly wine bar. We also had a cookery lesson at the restaurant which was the best thing we did all holiday! The area is great and very convenient for day trips to all the top destinations. The pool area was quiet and relaxing (although the pool needed to be cleaned every day due to the amount of bugs and I'm not sure it was). One downside was that the fridge would not stay shut, and one day swung open spilling/smashing our expensive wine (purchased that day) on the floor. The carbon monoxide (I think that's what it was) alarm also went off a few times which was disconcerting but always stopped again. I think this had something to do with the fridge swinging open. Yes the car park is a little walk to the villa (a couple of mins) but this didn't really bother us - you can't have everything! Plus we never found the dirt driveway an issue and we had a tiny car - just take it steady. All in all, we had a fantastic stay, To Tuscany is a great website, and I would thoroughly recommend this villa to a friend.

not for SELF CATERING

  • 2 of 5
This villa is not for people wanting self catering in the proper sense. It is a small villa inside, no air conditioning which in heat of 35plus does not make for comfortable living. It is Basic beyond Basic. and with powerpoints loose in the walls not particularly safe. The furniture is very tired and stained. The area of the villa is very nice although a car is essential. The staff are very helpful but they cannot be held responsible for individual owners property It may be that other villas in the complex are much more comfortable and indeed appeared to be so but Villa O is not one I will be returning to. In respect of cost, I stayed in a excellent hotel last year for very much the same price

Owner's Response: I was very sorry to receive the review above, it is very unusual. The guest stayed at Melegrano. I have now removed this villa from Holiday Rentals and replaced it with Il Sole. I must agree a car is essential and I am delighted the staff on site were helpful. I add a note that all powerpoints have been checked and found to be safe.
