“didnt live up to my expectations.wont be re visiting.”
Reviewed June 27, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

the swimming pool was the only saving grace of this holiday - but there should be more to a holiday than a swimming pool. Make sure you have a mobile phone that works abroad , so you can contact manager for assistance if required.We experienced a power failure for a whole day that had knock on effects for two days affecting water supply - so unable to shower, and electricity. A few other niggles such as air con not working , lights on the pool not operating, or pool side shower. Wont be returning.

Management Response
26 Jul 2011
We have advertised Villa Katia-Rosa with Holiday lettings since 2009 and have listed all our clients feedback, for all to view within our advertising web pages. We are dissapointed to now read this poor review and wanted the opportunity to respond as we pride ourselves in offering "Home from Home comforts" and delight that our villa resides in the beautiful region of Puglia in Southern Italy. All our clients complete a guestlist document prior to departure, including a contact mobile number for use during the holiday- this information is then forwarded via email to our house-keepers in Italy,in order to prepare the villa for all guest arrivals. All our clients are also instructed to contact the house-keepers when they arrive locally to arrange a time to meet at the villa. ie-to avoid delays waiting at the villa or indeed if needing help finding the villa
To then write a review complaining of: a)not realising a mobile phone was needed, when advised and at not having housekeepers waiting on arrival without contacting them first and then b) being held responsible for conditions outside our control such a power cut which can happen in Italy and which would have affected many villas in the area at the same time; is we feel a tad unfair. Our house-keepers responded by visiting the villa daily to check that all was in order (concerned at not having a mobile phone to communicate with)- this was percieved as a nuisance. The air-conditioning was checked before and after the mentioned stay and in perfect working order!! The shower at the side of the villa was never functional and not advertised as a shower. The pool lights had been temporarily affected by the power cut and are now working. We will always endeavour to put all to right and are very fortunate to have the most wonderful house-keepers who will go that extra mile to help all our guests, especially when you are situated in the beautiful countryside.
Perhaps this was not an ideal chosen holiday destination as there was no mention of any enjoyable sights during this holiday- such a shame when there really are many hidden treasures to enjoy and Puglian poeple who are warm and generous. We have had three client stays since this review all very satisfied with their holiday. We will strive to continue to offer what we feel is a wonderful Puglian experience and always deal with any complaints in a courteous and prompt manner as we did in this case but we may never please everyone!!We love our holiday home.
