Having the huge front gates to the Vila open upon our arrival is somethg we will never
Forget. This is the most private, quite, special place we've been. You get the "key to the house
As well as the front gate, which makes you feel like the diplomat the street suggests. The room and kichenette were immaculate. The wi-fi was great and allowed us to stay in touch, make our next reservation and just go on line with ease (we had a new tablet with us and it worked great
However, with all that, it does have some big downsides...it's really too far from all the sights. If you're like us, you like to get a lot in in one day. If you stay here, once you are out - that's it - you are out and not visiting your room again until you're day is over. No going back to the room to rest, refresh, nap, etc..
The other two problems are: no breakfast (which I did not think was going to be a problem) which turned out to be a huge problem. This is not the U.S., there are no places close by to get a bacon and egg sandwich - that is unheard of here. So going forward, I would always pick a hotel with breakfast when visiting Italy.
The next problem; no shower, bathtub with hand-held water wand in addition to regular bath choice. Let's just say it didn't work out for me (long hair).
