We regret that the guest was not able to appreciate his stay in our home.

In the annonce, posted in webpage used to reserve Villa Lantana, appear the following information about the location of the house: "...From the coast to the house is about 6 km, 4 km of Which are over an unsecured steep path. The view is worth it!"

When we knew his disconfort about the road, we gave to the guest an alternative solution of the same value (a 2 rooms appartment on the coast, usually moreexpensive) at no additional cost, which was not accepted.

The contract, signed by each guest prior to his arrival, says that there is not compensation in case the guest abandon the house once began the lease.

Although not required by the contract,as a sign of good will, we gave to the guest the sum of € 100.

We are renting successfully villa Lantana for vacations since 5 years. In fact, the 30% of our guests comes back to spend the holidays in our house.

The Pizzeria is a wonderful part of the experience. It is staffed by the friendly locals and does great Pizzas and our favourite Calzone anywhere!

Many thanks for taking the time to submit a review of your two weeks spent relaxing at The Shieling and for sharing your appreciation of the high standard of the accommodation. I am glad you enjoyed the welcome pack although I share your view that eating out in St Andrews, like so many other places on the East coast, is always a pleasure. I agree that capturing the vast panorama from the house can be a challenge to any photographer, but I believe you were successful and am sure you managed to do it justice. Your family certainly made good use your time here by exploring so much of Scotland each day, as well as utilizing the space surrounding the house for your exercise/running regime. Thank you for your custom and your comments and I hope to welcome you back one day.

"Perfect family vacation in Scotland"

We are family of five (parents and three boys aged 13, 11 and 6) from Luxembourg and had the pleasure of spending a week at the Shieling during the Easter Holidays in 2014. What a spectacular place: t… More

As our first visitors from Luxembourg, I am delighted that both you, and the boys, found The Shieling to be " a perfect family vacation". Your family clearly enjoyed the comfort of the house, its' views and the wildlife, whilst also appreciating the outdoor spaces and facilities. The weather was kind to you and, as The Shieling is so well sheltered from any westerly winds, we usually do enjoy the best of temperatures on the east coast. I am happy to know that you intend to be back to discover more of Scotland and to make the most of the superb golfing in our area. I look forward to seeing you all again. Grateful thanks for submitting your review.
