“Terraced house on a ridge above Punta Ala - good for up to six people”
Reviewed 14 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We spent one week in April in Punta Ala as a group of five mountain bikers. The advertisement on the german website promised a "villa" (http://www.fewo-direkt.de/ferienwohnung-ferienhaus/p445399), so we expected a detached house. In reality it is a terraced house, what was a slight disappointment. Especially if the price is considered, which is not really cheap for the region.
Three of the four bedrooms are great, so it was a pleasure for five people. There are two matrimonial beds and one bedroom with two separate beds. All fine for adults. The fourth bedroom is not nice, only a bunk bed that is too short for adults. The room has a very small window only and smells moldy. Not to be recommended for anyone to sleep in. So it's one star off for the house not being detached and the moldy room.
The view from the terrace is really stunning! The terrace is a perfect place to spend the morning with a long breakfast.
There is the possibility to exit the house through the back. After crossing a short strech of macchia (around 20m) there is a path you share with the rest of the terraced house, shown on some pictures of the advertisement. We never met anybody on the trail, so we considered it "private". The views there are great! We had a barbeque there and watched the sun go down – perfect! There is also a very steep and rugged path down to the sea. It takes around 10 minutes to get down and 20 minutes to get up again. The beach consists of rocks only, but was fine for us for a rest day. Very adventurous!
The second star off is for the internet connection which is advertised. There are two passwords needed, we only got one and didn't get the second one on request. The landlord asked us to solve the problem by ourselves directly with the internet provider in its shop in a town 20 km away from the appartement – definitely something we do not want to do in our holidays. And nothing that is expected if an internet connection is advertised.

All in all it's a place to be recommended, if you are not more than six people and you are ok with a terraced house. By the way, the neighbours are very friendly! And if you can live without internet connection. But that's maybe something the landlord can solve...

Management Response
2 Aug 2015
La sua recensione è molto severa ed il numero delle stelle attribuito rispetto a quello che ha scritto è piuttosto penalizzante. Le foto mostrano chiaramente che non si tratta di una villa ed il modem wifi, a causa del rinnovo del contratto, necessitava dell'attivazione fatta in un centro TIM ed io ero impossibilitato a farlo abitando a 200 km di distanza. Purtroppo non lo sapevo. Sono certo che chi leggerà queste righe saprà fare comunque la giusta considerazione. Grazie tuttavia per l'apprezzamento della casa.
