The villa is located 3 kilometers outside the village and was pretty hard to find. The coordinates that you recieve from the owners goes to some neighbour who is a beekeeper and didnt have a clue who we were. But after a couple of minutes Bruno arrived and took us down to the villa. Amazing view from the villa over the landscape and sun the whole day. Each bedroom had their own bathroom! The pool was enormous! No dishwasher and no wine glasses!! No air condition so it was pretty warm to sleep upstairs. Also the pool light stops at 21.30 so its not possible to be by the pool at night. A little bit of mould smell in the house. Bruno was there every morning between 6-8 to clean the pool and cut the grass and left fresh vegetables :) Also we had agreed and double checked that we could checkout at 10.00, but the day before the owner said not later than 9! Overall a good house with an amazing view!
Sehr schönes und gepflegtes Haus, herrlich gelegen und mit wunderschönem Pool, allerdings innen etwas feucht und kalt , da im Mai nicht heizbar. Die Ausstattung hinsichtlich Bettwäsche, Handtücher und insbesondere des Küchenbereichs könnte deutlich geschmackvoller und von besserer Qualität sein. Bei der Vermietung für 12 Personen ist ein Tisch für 4 Personen innen und ein Sammelsurium an Gläsern, Besteck nicht ausreichend. Die Beleuchtung ist zum Kochen und Lesen ungeeignet. Zuletzt störte der Geruch aus dem Kanal in 2 Bädern erheblich.
