Our Guest Reviews

Villa Encanto Recommended by 100% of our customers (5 reviews)
Average rating 7.6/10


Large villa suitable for multiple families - 8 bedrooms with their own bathroom facilitates (some are shared via connecting rooms)

Large living space, good for entertaining / gathering

Pool is a good size and deep enough (2m) to dive

Lots of seating areas

Good layout (downstairs is where the bedrooms are with access to the pool / outside and upstairs is the living space with access to balcony)

Gas BBQ - everything provided ready to go

Number of large supermarkets nearby - about 5-10 mins drive (car hire is a must)
Villa didn't feel ready when we arrived - pool cover was on, debris in the pool, pool sunbeds not cleaned down - we had to clean / prepare this!

Some lights not working (needed new bulbs)

No basics provided i.e. toilet rolls

Villa is showing its age with need for maintenance - it's fit for purpose though I guess

Showers are boiling hot or freezing cold

Pool heating wasn't very hot on some days (may have been due to weather conditions though)

Access to vegetable garden as noted as 'free' in the description is at cost

Location - you will need car to explore

Bins on site were difficult to access - involved loading up car with bags of rubbish and driving over the the owner's yard

One of the bedrooms is actually located in an annex

Lots of bugs around the villa, incl. in the bedrooms - owner does provide insect repellant though
The villa is located in a beautiful quiet and green area, close to supermarkets and beach. The owner is very kind, he showed us around upon arrival.
Very well suited for group and or team retreats because of the way the bedrooms are situated. Upstairs is a great space to host groups for creative sessions and/or lunch/dinner. The house was clean and well equipped. The beds were great!

It sometimes took a long time to receive a reply from Villanovo. On the other hand, we had plenty of time to arrange everything. Villanovo also booked the cars for us, everything went well so many thanks for that.
Overall we are very positive about this villa. We have a few tips to make the experience even better:
- The fridge in the kitchen leaks.
- The water tap in the kitchen doesn't give hot water.
- There were no scissors and we couldn't find the cushions for the chairs outside.
- A few extra rolls of toilet paper would have been nice.
- The last meters to the villa are hard to find in the dark (at the intersection before the house of the owner)
- We couldn't find we the waste bin outside.
La piscina y las partes comunes muy bien.
La cocina muy completa.
La red wifi no funcionaba bien... en la zona de dormitorios ya no habia señal.
Maison atypique.
Propriétaire très sympathique .
La maison n'a pas été conçu pour recevoir en période d'hiver, les fermetures ( son de simple vitrage sur châssis métallique laissant passer l'air en périphérie)
Le propriétaire a mis à notre disposition des radiateurs à bain d'huile sur roulettes.
L'eau chaude sanitaire fonctionne avec un ballon a l'énergie solaire et électrique il a fallu insisté pour que le propriétaire se déplace et branche la résistance électrique.
Les robinets de douche fonctionnent de façon très aléatoire risque de ce brûlé sous la douche changement de température de l'eau incontrôlable un renouveau ne seraient pas superflus.
Manque de prise électrique aussi bien dans la chambre que dans la salle de bain.
Pour finir dommage que les lits doublent soit des lits simples rapprocher.
