Richard

Newbury Family (the eldest child is at school)
Location excellent - at end of residential cul-de-sac and not overlooked. Beautiful gardens and very spacious, the villa's layout really worked for us as a party of five. Living areas are comfortable and well appointed and bedrooms all have an ensuite bathroom and lead straight out to the pool. The provision of a safe in the master bedroom was a nice touch. A few items need replacing - the parasol and a couple of outdoor sunbeds were torn, and the bathrooms are a little dated but nothing that affected our enjoyment. We really did have a very lovely week and would have loved to stay longer. Highly recommended.

Family (with only pre-school children)
Villa was as expected - good all round. However, a kitchen mop would be handy to wipe any liquid spillage. Also the patio chairs need cushions, backsides get "uncomfortable" after about 10 minutes siting on them. Kitchen door leading to the outside cloths dryer was always locked, so we were unable to use the dryer.

This is a wonderful villa it is spacious, quality of furniture excellent. Pool very clean, any issues were sorted the same day by James villa . Car essential as very hilly area. Only one issue is that seating area outside for dining only seats 6 and the villa is for 8. Only six donned plates other than that excellent holiday would go back highly recommended for villa and service by James villas 10/10

A

Family (with only pre-school children)
Villa was beautiful, exactly like in the pictures. The swimming pool and outdoor areas were stunning and incredible view.
Couple of minors issues to be prepared for (although these aren't reasons not to go).. although there are no neighbours in front, there are on either side and behind.. one week we unfortunately had to listen to someone else's really loud music every day. The internet is quite terrible, so make arrangements if you'll need to do any work, this was a big issue for my husband. Finally, despite being there for three weeks, the villa was only cleaned once (all other times were just a quick towel change, make the bed etc.) We were only 3, so not a huge issue but if you'd filled the house then I think this would be a bigger problem. Overall we loved the villa and would definitely go back.
