Keith

Swindon Family (the eldest child is at school)
I have stayed in James villas before and this villa is not to its usual standard and is not, in my opinion, a Signature villa, as advertised. The Santo Antonio facilities are not included with the villa, which is not clear when you book and is somewhat disappointing. The villa is very sparsely furnished and the kitchen is equipped very basic and so if you wanted to self cater it limits cooking. Also, it is not very private as it is overlooked by the villas next to it.

Overall, this is a beautiful, well equipped villa. Its furnishing are very good (though the pillows could be improved) and the whole package is nicely presented. The overall excellent impression is let down by a few small matters which could be easily rectified. 1) The welcome pack didn’t fit with the overall high quality of the villa- let down by UHT milk and margarine. 2) It is inconvenient and a little annoying to have to go out and buy dishwasher tablets, dishcloths, toilet paper, bin bags etc. If the cost of providing these is too great, put up the price by £5 which would more than cover the cost.

The villa was absolutely beautiful, very clean, spacious, and the outdoor space was very inviting. The kitchen was very well appointed and the only thing we were missing was aluminum foil for cooking, and clingfilm for storage. There was also no kitchen roll, and it would be nice to be provided with just one roll. We enjoyed every moment of our holiday at this beautiful villa.

Very good overall, nice location, quiet and relaxing environment.
Main improvement would be better quality cutlery and mugs.
Quite a few items of cutlery were a little corroded and some mugs were a little chipped in places.

Beautiful villa, lovely location, even for non-golfers like us ;-) Nearest Intermarche 5 mins in car for food & drink. Pool heating costs well worth it in April. Loved the upside-down concept of the house.

Family (the eldest child is at school)
A lovely villa, our second stay there in 4 years. It is in need of a bit of TLC here and there (e.g. broken shutter, tap broken, lots of ants) but overall it is lovely and very comfortable. We went through an unseasonably cold spell and the fabulous central heating kept us toasty. No doubt in summer the air conditioning in every room would have been equally good. The pool was fab. Very deep (even in the shallow end) and heated well. We really enjoyed it and may well return.

Cash Lucille has everything that you could want. It is in a very quiet and private location on an impressive estate of outstandingly maintained properties. It has a modern feel with excellent fixtures and fittings. A chair in the bedrooms would not go amiss and a few more mugs for tea / coffee would be helpful, but these are small observations rather than major irritants. We enjoyed an outstanding week in this lovely home.

Lovely villa. Stunning views. Suffers from the wind as it's located at the top of the hill although pool area is more sheltered so you can sit around the pool in comfort. Unfortunately, the pool and jacuzzi were too cold to swim in. We would have paid for pool heating in advance if it had been recommended for mid September but as we were only there for a week and it would have taken days to heat up the pool, it was too late to organise it once we were there. This was a big disappointment especially as the sea was too cold to swim in at that time of year. The kitchen is well equipped although missing some basic cooking utensils which we bought while we were there.
