Breath taking views, very clean and comfortable stay, fantastic value for money.

  • 4 of 5

The Villa is outstanding. Clean, comfortable, well equipped and very spacious. The pool was clean and peaceful and very refreshing. But most of all the view that hits you when you first enter the villa is breathtaking. I had read that the view were good but was not prepared for quite how beautiful. The view is perfect for enjoying with coffee in the morning, relaxing in the afternoon and sipping a glass of wine in the evening. After 10 days I could still sit for hours and take in the surroundings. Honestly I would probably have given Villa Ada 4.5 stars if I could. The main reason for giving it 4 is not so much the place but more the administration. We booked our preferred dates 18th to the 28th, a few weeks later we were sent an email asking us to change the date to the 19th to the 29th to give the time for cleaning . We were away when the email was sent and so had not replied for 3 days. Before we could reply we were sent another email saying as he had not heard from us he will cancel our booking and refund our money. You can imagine our shock as we had a lot of arrangements already made. I don't think 3 days is a long time to wait for our reply. Anyway we emailed back and asked not to cancel and the date change would be fine, so all was well again. Unfortunately when we arrived at the Villa we were told we were booked in for the original booking dates and the lady didn't know anything about us being asked to change and we were told if we wanted to stay until the 29th we would have to pay for an extra day which was crazy as we had payed for 10 days but we were being told we had to pay for 11 days even though we were staying for 10. We had already booked return tickets on tunnel for the 29th and our hire car was hired out for those dates. We had to spend some time finding the emails that the owners had sent us requesting we came on the 19th to prove that it was at their request that the dates were changed. Once these were emailed to him he apologised and everything was put right. But a lot of hassle and worry we didn't need on our hols. Apart from that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Ada.
