  • 5 of 5

Villa Serenatella A is a lovely property in a great location which allowed for a relaxing break with a little sightseeing.

The villa was spotlessly clean and spacious, with a well-stocked kitchen containing all the utensils you would need.

The balcony and terraces made best use of the views and have breakfast on the terrace was idyllic. Even in the dark we could tell the view was going to be exceptional and we were not disappointed to wake up to fantastic sea views.

The swimming pool was well maintained and cleaned during our stay. As it is only shared with the apartment below we were able to use the pool as much as we wanted. The deck area around the pool has plenty of sun beds and takes advantage of the view. The villa also has a roof terrace which is huge and has some sun beds for relaxing on, however there is no shade up there so you would need to be a real sun worshiper.

The staff were great in dealing quickly with any problems and arranging meals and days out if required.

I would definitely recommend Villa Serenatella A and would return if we wanted another trip to this area.

Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

The villa works very well for 6 people

  • 5 of 5

The villa works very well for 6 people. We especially enjoyed the swimming pool itself and the area around the pool. It's deep enough and long enough to swim laps.

The view from the pool area of the village and seascape below is sublime. We would gather here in the late afternoon. Mosquitoes in this area can be a problem unless you are using your repellent. Garden area here and surrounding the decks is nicely designed but needed a little upkeep in late summer. The patio area off the living room was spacious enough for the table to be augmented with the tables from Serenatella B to fit our group of 12 for dinner (we rented both floors which are set up as separate rentals).

All the furnishings and decorations -- the lamps, candelabras, coffee tables, followed a nautical theme and were very attractive.

The kitchen was a bit lacking and needs a microwave. Existing cabinets could be reorganized to allow storage of groceries. The pantry essentials, salt sugar, olive oil, etc. were left from previous renters which was very much appreciated. The espresso machine which used capsules was great until it malfunctioned. Then we had to go back to a older system which worked well with individual packets.

AC worked well and we frequently needed it at night to keep out mosquitoes. Otherwise the front rooms could be opened up for delicious breezes from the sea.

Bedrooms were very nicely decorated, each with a different theme and matching drapes and bed covers. They were not spacious but big enough. Some rooms need a chair as there was no place to sit but the bed. Lighting was very good in all the rooms. Floors were the beautiful ceramic tiles produced nearby.

The family who owns/manages the villa is well known in the villages of Marina del Cantone and Nerano. Olga and her sons could not do enough to insure your carefree stay. Whenever we needed anything, they were quick to provide it. Their complimentary shuttle service is a god-send after a day at the beach. A huge bonus for guests is Olga's private beach area (with lounges, umbrellas, changing cabins and a refrigerator to keep your drinks cool). Swimming here is from the rocks but there is a ladder to get in and out of the water.

We appreciated that the owner was willing to take a check in US$ for the deposit.

  • 5 of 5

This superb apartment has just everything one could ask for in a summer holiday setting.

The view is spectacular, the apartment is very large, airy and very stylishly decorated. High quality in every detail.

Everything was ranked excellent, except the bedrooms and bathrooms, which are very good. The reason we did not give "excellent" to the bedrooms and bathrooms is the fact that there is a complete lack of hooks on the walls. Nowhere really to hang up your towels in the bathrooms, and in the showers; no shelves to put your shower gel. This is really annoying, but of course easily corrected if the owner puts his mind to it.

The pool is fantastic with a glass wall towards the seaview. Thus, you swim and look at the Ocean at the same time. Also the owner's representative came every day to clean the pool and check the apartment for any faults. The owner's "shuttle service" (free of charge) to the beach is also a great asset. They normally came within 10-15 minutes no matter what time of the day we called. A unique service. The private beach is a great advantage on crowded days. It has sun chairs, fresh water shower, and easy access to the sea via a stairway (no sand beach as such). Also a refrigerator is available for your cold drinks which you bring along. The owners provide suitable towels to bring to the pool and the beach at no cost. Great.

All in all - this is one of the absolutely best places we have had our holiday, and we do recommend the two Serenatalla units. We were 10 people (6 adults and 4 children) and occupied both units. That was ideal since there is a door and staircase inside connecting the two apartments [locked when only one apartment is rented].

Best regards from 10 happy Norwegians.

PS: The two local grocery shops are very small and have available only basic items in Limited quantities. Do shop in a large supermarket before you come to the apartment. The drive back to a half decent supermarket is fairly long and with endless number of curves.
