I must say that I am really shocked and very disappointed reading this review as this is the first time someone has complained however, I respect your comments and have taken some of them into consideration. To start off with we don’t wish to update the alleyway down to the house which dates back to the 11th century, or the front door that has been there for a very long time. Most people that visit usually appreciate the history and character of the property. As to the size of the house… I advertise the house for couples or families with small children as the second bedroom is designed for young kids not adults. As to the odd creepy crawly… Pereta is perched on the hillside in the countryside so this is just part of nature. However, I am fitting new fly screens for 2012. The cleaning fee includes all bed linen, towels, beach towels and a lovely welcome basket with enough food and drink for breakfast and an evening meal!! I apologize about the fridge having ice in it and I have bought a new one for 2012. I am sorry you didn’t enjoy your stay at Casa Romantica, obviously this style of holiday was not for you and it’s very sad that you have found so many negative things to say. For your next holiday you may be better staying in a modern style apartment.
