“WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND -WILL BE BACK”
WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND -WILL BE BACK We stayed at Villa Katia-Rosa in July and had such a fabulous time. We always worry about air conditioning when the weather is so hot as we have to go in school holidays and this villa had air con throughout, but it was great to be able to leave the windows open for a natural breeze to waft in to the bedrooms when our kids were having their siestas in an afternoon you really do need the insect screens in the villa- the shutters allow you to snooze ( husband very appreciative-great beds!) even when the temperature is soaring outside. The pool was really luxurious we couldn't believe that we had it all to our self. It was great to have evening dips using the lights on the terraces and in the pool. We made good use of the pool and terrace areas for our evening barbeques. It really has home from home. DVD's, Playstation, Fims, Books, Games and Music were really welcomed. We added a few to your collection as a thank you. We used the Sat-Nav a great after thought, as we wouldn't have known about some of the places to visit. We loved going to the Zoo Safari and the theme park was really very cheap for a family day out. We visited the caves you recommended in Castro, with the cliffside pool and boat trip. The restaurants located overlooking the sea was such a georgeous setting. Great market days which we could have easily missed and found the restaurants suggested- loved Spillusi's antipasta's to die for I think I counted 16 dishes!! and so cheap; the Sat-Nav even took us to us to a local vineyard where we bought wine for next to nothing. The information in your villa folder really helped us organise our days. Puglia really is much cheaper than our trip in Tuscany last year. We love Italy and this is the real deal. We still l have loads to see and will take you advice about coming again out of season when the weather isn't so hot for touring the area properly. A charming villa, you have thought of everything and we will happily recommend to family and friends.
Owner's reply: We were glad to be able to advise the car insurance excess cover, it really is well worth taking out to secure the deposit left on your car hire which is pretty hefty in Italy!! We try and pass on all our money saving tips to help our guests. The air-conditioning we think is a must especially during the high season and its lovely that we have units throughout the villa. The terraces are a godsend in the midday heat and something we are so grateful to have. We didn't realise just how improtant bought the villa in 2008 we didn't realise how important they are for outside dining and relaxing close to the pool. Its so nice to hear you enjoyed seeing Puglia and that you made good use of our pre-loaded trips on the Sat-Nav. The Zoo safari is a favourite with our family too and really reasonably priced. Im glad you noticed eating out and drinks are much cheaper in Puglia when compared with Northern Italy there aren't many places left in the Eurozone! Thank you once again for recommending us to your family and friends and we do hope that you can return soon.
