"Great holiday, in a beautiful location"

Villa Rita was a very comfortable place to stay for a couple of weeks. The location is attractive and easy to access. The house itself is small, but neat, tidy and well-equipped. The views from the house don't really take advantage of the location, which is a shame but only a minor quibble. The main bedroom is a mezzanine with a very low celling and steep stairs to access; fine for the fit and able but not recommended for those with mobility problems.

The owner was great - welcoming and very helpful without being at all intrusive. At one point we reported that the fridge was broken and he had a new one ordered and installed within 24 hours.
