Villa very well-located with large grounds & gardens, privacy and character, great views from the heated pool, and a friendly, accommodating hostess, but there are maintenance and other issues.
Most serious is an endemic mold/mildew issue everywhere inside (incl all BRs, not just the lounge as previously claimed). Even after thoroughly ventilating everywhere, the smell returns after just a few hours closed up, and is bad enough that we experienced respiratory symptoms. The mildew has got inside the (otherwise excellent) bedroom AC units so the smell worsens when the AC is used.
Other maintenance issues: several damaged, torn, loose or missing screens on windows, lights burned out or not working (incl Boules Court), poorly cleaned floors, Electrical outlets hanging loose, fountain pumps not working, BBQ not cleaned/maintained (huge grease fire on first use, erratic lighting/gas supply), plugged drain in ensuite shower (we fixed), un-trimmed shrubbery makes difficult access to the sun lounge beside the pool.
There is some kind of electrical/grounding problem: we got electric shocks from the TVs and some other appliances, and even our own laptops when plugged into the villa, particularly if standing on the stone floor in bare feet.
Poor WIFI internet speed and signal quality.
Perhaps due to the holes in the screens, or maybe the fact that the lounge can only be ventilated by leaving exterior doors open (with no screens), there are mice in the villa, bold ones, not just eating and contaminating food but also waking us at nite nibbling our fingers, hair, etc in bed. !! Our request for mouse traps was not actioned. Some of the damage (chewed towells and eaten food) appears to be from something larger, but the mice we can confirm 100% from many sightings and too-close encounters.
Bathrooms consist of the equivalent of 2 full bathrooms split between 3 locations, with one shower and basin inside a bedroom closet, one 4-pc bath (toilet, basin & bath with shower) in the hall, and one additional toilet in a separate cubicle. No bathroom on upper bedroom floor.
There are some lovely bits of character ... stonework, beam ceilings, arches and wood doors... , but also small bathrooms with painted vinyl flooring on the walls and a tiny cramped kitchen with little counter space. These things do not appear in the photos. Overall, this villa does not quite live up to the photos and description and would benefit from more attentive maintenance.
