Avoid the morning race for a poolside lounger and treat yourself to a holiday villa with a private pool. Take the family, take your friends, or simply take yourself and enjoy the bliss of your own pool - in your own place!
Private indoor or outdoor pools are the perfect way of keeping the kids entertained onsite and offer hours of fun for all. Bathe your feet in comfort while you relax with a long cool drink in the early evening or sample the delights of a night swim in balmy climates.
Whether secluded in the mountains, hidden in the depths of the country or by a sunny beach, renting a villa with a pool direct from the owner makes privacy a luxury all can afford.
This villa built in the mid 18th century and recently restored is separated into two large apartments, each covering an entire floor of the villa that can be used together or as separate apartments. A deconsecrated chapel (see our ref. i5.513) from the same p... …see more

Obviously, we are always keen to hear feedback, and we are sorry to hear that Villa Con Vista did not meet our guest’s expectations on this particular occasion.
Prior to this, we had no serious problems with the air conditioning units, and they have operated faultlessly since. Being in a secluded and rural part of Italy, 48 Hours to have the air conditioning unit attended to and fixed we feel is actually very good. Clearly we would have preferred this not to happen in the first place, but as with any house with electrical appliances, despite regular maintenance, these things very occasionally happen.
The local commune (council) controls the water supply in the area, and sometimes regulates to private residences during exceptionally hot summers, at night when required.
We provide all of our guests with our home and personal mobile numbers. We are always happy to take guests' calls and would have been happy to explain how to switch over to the alternate water supply if this was required
