We enjoyed every minutes of our stay at Villa Romantica. The villa is so beautiful. It has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. The weather was a little hot when we were there but we enjoyed coming home to the beautiful and refreshing swimming pool. There was plenty of space to lounge. Villa Romantica is the best villa we've ever stayed in.

Management response:

Hello Mary Ann, Thank you so much for your kind words. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Villa Romantica as much as we do. It was a pleasure hosting you and hope you return some day soon. We love having guests like your group.
