“Lovely villa, stunning location, great facilities.”
Reviewed August 18, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Really enjoyed La Gelosa. We booked it in its 4 person option so additional 2 bedrooms and living room/kitchenette on top floor not accessible.

Rocco the house manager was very welcoming and accommodating. Very understanding of our delay in arriving - we did keep him informed via telephone.

Vegetable patch that you could pick tomatoes, courgettes, beans, aubergines, salad leaves and herbs from was a lovely touch which we fully
utilised!!

The villa is old in style but has all mod cons and was true to the photos.

The views especially from the top floor were glorious. Point to note to prospective customers is that the downside to this elevated position is that there was a steep hill to get to the house from the nearest village of petroio and there were lots of steps inside and outside the property. In particular I would suggest that the stairs inside from the ground floor to the first floor would not be suitable for those with any mobility restrictions or young children. These stairs were the original worn stone ones so whilst full of character were uneven and not at all accommodating in the event of a tumble.

The only other downside for us was the extreme heat and Mosquitos - no doubt related. Given the unusually high temperatures this summer the house was too hot for us at night - there are insect guards on the windows and fans in the bedroom but we didn't seem able to dissipate the heat from the house despite keeping he windows closed during the day and having the fans on all night and despite the fly guards on all the windows and the purchase of citronella candles, citronella candles and spray we still got bitten every night without fail which made a decent nights sleep.
