Dealing with Filippo is a real pleasure. He responds to emails quickly and provides you with all the information you will need for an enjoyable stay at the villa.
The views from the villa over the valley with the Alps in the distance are spectacular. The villa itself is magnificent and the kitchen is better equipped than any kitchen I’ve ever seen in a rental property. There’s adequate hot water and good water pressure. The property is very quiet.
Within 175 m of the property is a pharmacy, restaurant/pizzeria, bakery, bar and a free public parking area. In less than a five minute drive is a hardware store and grocery store.
I mentioned the free public parking area because even though the website says that there is parking on the property the entrance is so narrow that only a very small car could possibly get on to the property. There is plenty of parking across the street from the villa but I chose to park at the public parking area. If you decide to park in the public parking area you cannot park there on Tuesday nights because there’s a market early Wednesday morning.
There are only a few minor negatives about the property. First of all, there are no hooks in the bathrooms. We found this to be very irritating. Also in one of the bathrooms the only lighting is around the mirror. During the day this is okay but at night it is like a dungeon.
One word of advice to anyone staying at the villa. Bring shoes that you can easily slip on and off. The reason I say this is that there are no bathrooms on the ground floor and you have to go up a set of stairs to get to the bathrooms. The stairs are carpeted with light carpeting and Filippo requests that you do not wear your street shoes on this carpet (he provides plenty of slippers). If you stop in during the day to either drop something off or pick something up and you want to go to the bathroom, you have to take your shoes off. Unfortunately, all I had were hiking boots and to unlace and relace these boots got to be a real irritant. So, make sure you wear slip on shoes.
We had a very enjoyable stay and would love to go back.
