Firsty, the late review is due to us trying to sort out issues following our burglary whilst staying at Villa Collum.
I'll try and keep this brief & to the point.
We hope that the security of the villa has been addressed following our burglary during our stay in August 2011.You should make sure that all the shutters are fully working, and the bars are totally secure on both the windows and patio doors. Perhaps they have now installed an alarm, if so USE IT.
We stayed for 14 nights at this villa, and the latter 6 days were ruined following this terrible incident. You will see the local Police on frequent patrol, now we know why!
Have to say we were disappointed with the decor of the villa, however we're guessing this will have been updated since our stay.
This villa is in a great location.
Thank you for your review. Please note that this is for a stay in August 2011. Unfortunately due to a door being left open, it was reported that there had been items missing in the property. Since August 2011 we have now placed additional fixed metal bars on all windows and metal bars with key locking system on all sliding doors to ensure that this resolves the issue with security. We have not had any further issues since these new measures have been put in place.
