“Fantastic villa...wonderful staff!”
Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed at Villa Albachiara for 3 nights (21st-24th August 2016) and had a wonderful time. We travelled as a large family group (7 adults and 4 kids) and have nothing to say but praise.

Throughout the holiday planning the owner was quick to reply to all enquiries and the staff gave us first class treatment from the moment we arrived. We were welcomed to the villa with fresh cold juice and our bags were delivered to our rooms. Before arrival we had communicated with the supervisor to request that the chef prepare lunch so that we could eat shortly after arrival and were delighted to find lunch awaiting us so the kids could eat and get ready for afternoon activities.

The rooms, bathrooms and lounge areas are clean, spacious, comfortable, well furnished and suitable for the warm temperatures at the coast. We were especially pleased that all windows in the 5 bedrooms were covered with a mesh to keep mosquitos and other insects out...While mosquito nets are great, the mesh was fantastic as we could sleep with open windows to let a breeze into the rooms without worrying about the being flooded by critters.

The pool and gardens were lovely and look much better when one is physically present than they do on the Internet. We had enough space for the kids to run around and a nice shallow end at the pool to sit with the toddlers.

All in all we had a wonderful stay at Villa Albachiara and get a top rating from all 11 of us.

We vacationed for 3 days at Villa Albachiara with friends and we had lots of fun.The house and grounds are very beautiful,the garden is wonderfully beautiful and the pool is breath taking and to die for. The staff simply wonderful and always helpful always jolly and helpfully. I highly recommend their chef he is well equipped with culinary skills and his Italian food was amazing. It was a fantastic trip.
