We were a group of 10 friends and had a wonderful time at Villa Barretti. We enjoyed the view, the pool, and all the amenities that offers that pretty house. It is also really well situated
Do not hesitate !
Thanks for your kind review. We're very pleased you enjoyed your stay at Villa Barretti.
Great place to spend time in an amazing countyside
We spent one week in October at Villa Baretti , which is a great object. Clean, comfortable, well equipped. The countryside around with its bays and beaches completes the excellent overall experience. The local housekeeper did a good job preparing everything to the guests favour. No problems at all, teally a five star site....
So relaxing with beautiful views
The villa is in a quiet spot with stunning views of the coastline. It is well furnished and has a good supply of kitchen equipment.
Franceso was very helpful and we enjoyed using the BBQ.
Thanks Julie. As per your email I understand you'd intended to give us 5* but clicked the wrong button :)
Excellent property with stunning views
As a family of parents with adult children and partners we thoroughly enjoyed the ambience and relaxing nature of the holiday at the Villa Baretti. The listing accurately described the property and we did find the views perhaps better than expected, as was the local beach which was truly terrific and family friendly.
The kitchen was well stocked with equipment and the bathrooms were modern, functioning and clean. The main internal sitting room was very pleasant and accommodated 8 of us comfortably. The outside seating areas were very pleasant and we particularly liked the terracing at pool level which was below the main outdoor area as this did afford a measure of privacy. This arrangement however is probably not suitable for smaller children.
The property has good washing facilities for clothing and the pool area was clean and tidy. The views from the pool were stunning.
The local amenities were entirely as expected for a small community and we discovered that the markets near the beach supplied good day to day produce. The fish market was a small and excellent counter in one of the shops.
The local beach was enjoyed by all our party as it was sheltered, safe and the water was beautifully clean. Our party included very experienced travellers and they commented that the beach was the equal of anything they had experienced for beauty and cleanliness. The beach cafe also served superb coffee!
We did not venture far at all as the party enjoyed the rest and recuperation of being in a relaxing environment. We did go to the beach at Solanas, which is about 7 minutes by car and one evening enjoyed an excellent meal at Da Barbara Restaurant located there.
The local managing agent was very helpful and explained matters clearly which helped us settle in quickly.
The only 'negatives' were that the internet connection was poor and intermittent so guests should come prepared with their own tech solutions. The private driveway to the property is steep and challenging and not for a fainthearted driver!
Overall we would have no hesitation in returning to the property and it was well liked by all the guests.
Thanks for your kind review, we're glad that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Barretti. Everyone loves the un-spoilt panoramic views over the sea, beach and hillside, even if the drive does seem a little steep at first!
Fantastic Villa, beautiful panoramic views
We've just returned from a fabulous week at Villa Barretti - the best villa we have stayed in ! ( a party of 7 with 5 young adults ) The views are simply stunning and the villa was comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed. The pool and outdoor terraces are excellent and provide plenty of shade for sunbathing and outdoor dining - and star gazing at night . Torre delle Stelle is a lovely town with a great beach ,supermarket, bars and a pizzeria; all within walking distance. We'd definitely recommend it for a relaxing break in a beautiful location . The road to the villa is quite steep but navigating it does get easier with practice ! Peter was very helpful and responsive with queries we had before the trip and Francesco the property manager was friendly and informative on site when we arrived and during the holiday .
A great holiday and we will definitely be back for another visit.
Thanks for your kind review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa Barretti and hope you will consider us again in the future.
Beatiful view - house gets very hot - kitchen with defects - pool needs maintenance
I just spent a week in this house with my partner and our three adult children. We had a wonderful time and the views from the terrasses as well as from the house are indeed fabulous. However, I wish to point out that the house has a serious problem with becoming very warm. The house has many south facing windows/doors and as there are no shutters before the windows and probably no isolation in the roof, it is not possible to prevent the house from heating up during the day. Even though we kept all doors open all evening for ventilation purposes, it was unbearable to stay inside, especially in the kitchen, which was a problem in relation to cooking.
It should be noted that there are only aicons in the bedrooms and that according to the terms, you must pay for the use of electricity in excess of 100 kwh. Consequently, we only used the aircons at night (and only in 3 rooms), however we still used appr 230 kwh in one week (!)
Furthermore, I wish to point out that the dish washer and the refrigerator are both old and ineffective and should be replaced, that the pool needs clean up of the discoloured sides, and that some of the outdoor furniture need replacement.
The property manager Francesco was very accommodating and did his best to compensate for these issues, however the heating issue needs further initiatives from the owners.
Recommendation to the owners:
I encourage you to accept the fact that use of aircons is necessary in the warmer months and to include this in the rent. You could also consider to install some outdoor kitchen facilities as an alternative to the warm kitchen inside
Deposit of 30% secures booking. Balance 8 weeks before arrival. Security deposit €500 payable on arrival. 100 KwH electricity included, additional units charged at 0.3 Euro / KwH (to discourage leaving aircon running all day in empty bedrooms). Cleaning charge included. Optional linen rental charge of €15 / person / stay. please enquire about special long stay winter rates
