Nice holiday

  • 4 of 5

The app was clean and well maintainend, except the shower, the doors didnt close! The broken fridge was exchangend immediately! The surrounding is very beautiful and many things to see and do! Culture and beach and good food!

The pool unfortunately we could only reach by taking a 5 minutes walk along the street with quite a lot of traffic. We didnt expect that, we thaught that the pool is on the same ground as the appartment.

The welcome could have been nicer, we had to leave to get all the money for the whole stay after driving 15 hours with a small child, even though we had already payed the deposit! It would have been nice to give us a break. Also we arrived a little earlier and didnt get that feeling of being really welcome.Then I also have stayed in other family homes where really always such things as salt, pepper, oil, cleaning liquid... was provided; we had to buy everything new, which doesnt make sense for a short stay. However we left it there and perhaps the next visitors could use it.

But nevertheless the app. was nice and clean and we did have a beautiful vacation.

Greetings Heike

Nicht Empfehlenswert!

  • 1 of 5

Die Wohnung war alt und sehr verwohnt und

Warm Duschen war nicht möglich, das lauwarme Wasser reichte für ca. 1Minute. Die Wohnung lag ca. 800 m vom Hauptgebäude und dem Pool entfernt.

Die Vermieter waren sehr nett und bemüht.

Owner's Response: Dear Iris, and Ali, We are infinitely sorry that you are not remained satisfied with your stay with us. Overall We feel sorry that we have never heard of your hot water problems. Today we just asked the family that is now in the apartment FICO and everything is normal. Maybe if you had reported your concern, we could do something for you. As for the location of the apartment, our description correctly reports that the apartment is 500 meters from the main part of the farm and thus of all amenities, including the pool. Those who choose this apartment usually chooses it because it is quieter and being further away from the pool is a little less expensive, although extremely comfortable and although they can easily take advantage of all the services. In any case, we are very sorry that you could not enjoy your holiday and we hope to be able to make you change your opinion on another occasion! Our best regards. Antonio, Valeria e tutta la famiglia Baisi Liebe Iris, und Ali, Wir sind unendlich traurig, dass Sie nicht mit Ihrem Aufenthalt bei uns zufrieden geblieben sind. Wir sind der Meinung Insgesamt traurig, dass wir nie von Ihrem Warmwasser Probleme gehört haben. Heute haben wir nur gefragt, die Familie, die jetzt in der Wohnung FICO ist und alles ist normal. Vielleicht, wenn Sie Ihr Anliegen berichtet hatten, konnten wir etwas für Sie tun. Was die Lage der Wohnung, berichtet unsere Beschreibung richtig, dass die Wohnung nur 500 Meter vom Hauptteil des Hofes ist und somit von allen Annehmlichkeiten, die Pool. Diejenigen, die diese Wohnung in der Regel wählt es, weil es ruhiger ist und sein weiter vom Pool entfernt ist etwas weniger teuer, obwohl äußerst komfortabel, und obwohl sie leicht alle Vorteile der Dienste zu nehmen. Auf jeden Fall sind wir sehr traurig, dass Sie nicht Ihren Urlaub genießen konnten und wir hoffen zu können Sie Ihre Meinung zu einer anderen Gelegenheit machen ändern! Mit freundlichen Grüßen. Antonio, Valeria e tutta la famiglia Baisi

Leider nicht sehr ruhig

  • 2 of 5

Küchenausstattung beschränkt sich auf Geschirr und Töpfe. Lage nicht inmitten von Olivenbäumen, sondern Acker(Anfang September abgeerntet und unglaublich staubig). Haupthaus auf der anderen Seite des Dorfes. Obwohl Anreise um 15 Uhr angekündigt, mussten wir 3 Stunden warten, bevor wir ins Haus durften. Garage ist ein wackeliges Weinrebengestell.

Ruhe ist etwas Anderes! Nachts kann man sowohl die nahegelegene Autobahn, als auch die noch nähere Bahn hören. Die Überlandstromleitung summt, der Kühlschrank brummt, die italienischen Nachbarn feiern gerne, um 4 Uhr fängt ein Gockel an zu krähen, gelegentlich schreit ein Esel markerschütternd und an einem Tag waren ständig Schüsse zu hören. Die Krönung stellte ein Schuss auf unser Dach dar, der eine Dachziegel zum Bersten brachte.

Für die Nutzung der Waschmaschine mussten wir 3 Mal zum Haupthaus fahren, obwohl wir vorher angefragt hatten.

Der ausgeschriebene Garten(ca 15qm groß) ist in einem erbärmlichen Zustand, ich habe mich genötigt gefühlt, die vertrocknenden Pflanzen zu gießen, obwohl sie gegen das Unkraut wohl keine Chance haben. Ein nicht abgeernteter Feigenbaum war zudem Magnet für unzählige Wespen und Hornissen, die das Essen auf der Terrasse zum Abenteuer machten.

Das Eisfach im Kühlschrank war kaputt, ebenso der Duschkabineneingang. Die Klospülung macht dermaßen abenteuerliche Geräusche, dass man damit nachts den Rest der Familie aufweckt(falls es denen gelungen ist einzuschlafen).

Ich habe schon seit Jahren Ferienwohnungen hier gebucht und war immer sehr zufrieden. Eigentlich stelle ich auch keine großen Ansprüche an meine Unterkunft, es sollte halt ruhig sein und das ist nunmal nicht der Fall. Also wer Ruhe sucht und die Angebote des Vermieters in Anspruch nehmen möchte, der sollte entweder eine Ferienwohnung im Haupthaus, oder etwas ganz Anderes buchen.
