Pros: great villa, good kitchen, spacious. Close to monastery (drive able). Secluded. Up in the hills means even in summer you get a nice breeze
Con: internet very slow.. Just checking in online for our return flights took a long time so forget about using it for streaming ... But the villa is for a family holiday so put your computers away and spend some time together! Pool not heated so some times of day can be a bit cold when you first get in
The best thing about this trip however was the villa company. We actually booked another villa through a third party who promised a completely secluded and private experience. On the second day of our trip someone was on the balcony of the neighbouring villa and could see into our swimming pool. When we contacted the third party they passed us on to Catalunya Casas who were the actual villa rental company. At this point it could've ended badly... Catalunya could have said the booking wasn't through them and that there was nothing they could do about it. However, within a few hours of me sending them a photo showing the issue, they had offered us another villa nearby (the one on this listing) that was larger and in a better location at no extra cost ... And they managed to do this on a Sunday at what must be the busiest time of year (peak summer)! I also forgot some cash in the original villa, Catalunya Casas arranged for someone to drop it to me the next day (for free! And the new villa was 1 hr away). I was very impressed by their service and will definitely book any further holidays in the region through them. Thanks!
