“Wonderful view, nice swimmingpool and garden, house needs a thorough cleaning”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We knew this house from about 7 years ago during a holiday week in autumn. Now we were here 2 weeks during high season summer. The garden is kept well, the swimming pool is great and the view is panoramic. However, we noticed that nothing had been changed inside the house, nothing, refurnished or updated during al those years. The house felt a bit 'gone' and neglected. Particularly the fact that the floors and rooms were not clean (everywhere spider webs). Perhaps nice for friends and family of the owners, but as full paying high season renter you may expect more professionalism. A bit annoying was also that the 'guide book for guests' was not updated. It was not clear how and where exactly the waste should be brought to. Use pictures and maps to make it clear! Also there was no clear instruction about the use of the TV and the channels. The first week we could not use the TV (which my mom really missed). Only after Mario had re-installed the TV channels it was possible to watch television (first only 1 channel, later more channels.)
The fact that Laura, the housekeeper, only speaks Italian and not one word English makes the conversation not easier. It hampers to pick up the phone and ask questions. In the second week we were with 5 persons and (as in the first week) we were provided 1 normal size towel and 1 small tower per person per week. I have been washing all the time! Why not leaving a pile of towels for the family, so that I didn't need to wash every day? By the way, there is no dryer, which is no problem if you have good weather, but we also had some rain, so we had the move the wash drying inside. Why not invest in a dryer? Or in a bit more toilet paper? There is a dishwasher, but guests are requested not to put the cultery in the dishwasher. Not that the cutlery is very special, but why not keeping that cutlery yourself and providing guests with cutlery that can be put in the dishwasher? It is all about providing a comfortable stay and this time me and my family had the impression that the owners are a bit unprofessional and quite greedy in terms of investment in the maintenance of the house.

Liked best: the swimming pool and the view
Liked least: it was not clean and not maintained; the minimum amount of detergent for the doing the dishes etc. We bought everything ourselves.

Management Response
18 Nov 2015
We would like to thank our guests for their valuable comments that allow us to further improve the quality we like to offer.
Considering the rather high investments made in recent years it did hurt a bit to be seen as greedy. We invested in new tiling of the swimmingpool, renewal of all blinds outside, leather armchairs, teak table and chairs on one of the terraces for example. Obviously not noticed by our guests which is most unfortunate.
If we would have known the issue of the dryer we could have solved it right away. In 15 years this was never needed during summer and therefore stored in the garage.
We unfortunatly cannot change the comments made which help us to stay on our toes. Meanwhile the panoramic view remains spectacular, the swimmingpool as beautifull as ever, the garden well maintained and the rustic Italian atmosphere of the house even better.
