“We have just spent a wonderful ten days at Villa Elo being looked after so well by Abdel, Fatma and Fatma. We all loved the space in the villa and the enormous garden which were much used with boule, tabletennis and the badminton set we bought with us. Fatima the cook was utterly amazing providing us with endless delicious meals beautifully presented every day and although we went out to a restaurant three times her food was as good or better than the restaurants so we have all returned several pounds heavier from our holiday. It was a very special family trip celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversary with members of the family aged from 9 months to 74 and we all had the most happy memorable holiday - many thanks to Abdel, Fatma & Fatma and the owners for making it so special.
Rita and Matilda of Villanovo both were available for help whenever you needed them.” - David J.

“Very nice Riad, modestly decorated and not shabby chic. Nice roof terrace. It was a bit cold in Jan/Feb but the sitting in the sun on the roof overlooking the landscape of Medina roof tops is just fantastic. The entire Medina is indeed within walking distance (nearest taxi pick up / drop off is a 2 minute walk). The staff is very kind (french speaking, but not english - we managed to communicate everything necessary, though). They prepared a nice breakfast every morning and also lunch and dinner upon request.
Helpful service of Villanovo. Our host came to the Riad on the first day and sorted out everything and made sure that we arrived well. She also helped us book day trips.” Jacob B.

The - : No photos or description of kitchen
Ants in kitchen and on counters, food preparation areas, cupboards - need for insect control measures.”

“The service was lovely and the house beautiful. We thought the location was great for getting about. The drivers the house provided were friendly and very helpful.
It was difficult when some of the guests were hungry and we hadn’t ordered to eat. It would be good to have some food always available so that guests could order snacks/light meals during the day if they haven’t booked in lunch. The food we did have was excellent!”

“We absolutely loved this Road. The first night, it was daunting walking through the back streets at night and wondering where we were staying, but once we arrived through the doors ..... wow!
The facilities were great, the staff were absolutely superb, and like family towards the end. The quality of the cooking ... we tried eating out a couple of times during the week, and to be honest, it was not even close to the quality of what the two ladies served up. Our children can be fussy, but they ate everything! Already recommended to several friends and family, and done a review on Trip Advisor.
VILLANOVO : Never come across you before in the UK, but now we are looking at our next holiday with Villanovo already!”- Ahmad F.
