Very good, quick responses from Villanovo to my questions.
Fridge too small for the number of guests.
Water in showers needs to be hotter.
Nobody came at 10.00 am on day of departure as requested.
The whole setting of the villa was magnificent, great sized bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms for the number of bedrooms. The pool setting was idyllic and use of the cottage by the pool meant we could get cold drinks/food with ease using the kitchen facilities without returning to the main house.

Good villanovo site and fair prices, easy to book and keep up to date with payments etc
Could do with more glasses or plastic crockery at the pool house. Directions to get to the property were not that easy to follow and we got lost on our way to the villa - the meet and greet host cake and found us which was excellent. No air con,bed rooms were hot overnight. Outside eating area could do with additional lighting for evenings. Better WiFi as we struggled with speed and connectivity even outside as suggested. More kitchen utensils (eg a set of new sharp knives) and large wok/frying pan would also be useful.
This is a stunning property in a great location - isolated and not easy to find but nevertheless great. The grounds are lovely and the rooms all spacious.
As communicated to you separately:
1. There was no indication on any of the publicity that we would need to pay 250 Euros extra for heating.
2. On arrival the property was very cold and despite numerous attempts over the weekend and during the week, the heating never worked.
3. We were told we could bring a small dog - when we arrived, the manager objected.
4. The house is full of art work and artefacts - this was difficult with small children but we moved them and then put them back in position afterwards.
5. The TV did not work and again, this was only repaired part way through the visit.
These issues really spoilt what should have been a fantastic venue and holiday. The number of calls to and visits from the manager, cleaner, technicians etc really dominated the holiday and the fact that with small children and older family members, the property was so cold during the first few days was extremely disappointing. The website information about heating and costs were all updated after we complained but that doesn't change the fact that it was not accurate for us.
Maison particulièrement spacieuse et très bien équipée. Grande tranquillité encadre extrêmement agréable.
La localisation est correcte car les accès aux axes principaux sont assez proches mais l'accès n'est pas évident au premier abord. Il faut s'y habituer.
Beautiful villa, vast and elaborate gardens, wonderful property, views, and local area. Would definitely visit again, and could accommodate a larger group.

Only issue was that the villa we originally booked had a pool problem, and Villanovo put us into another villa which, from the website listings, did not appear to be as nice of a house, although the price was slightly higher (which Villanovo covered). No way to know if this was the case, but the villa we stayed in was exceptionally nice, so really was not an issue. The listing of the second villa probably didn't do justice to how nice the property was. Villanovo staff did do it's best to accomodate us in the circumstances.
wifi not great, satellite TV a bit limited, and not working when we arrived.
