5 stars , no doubt (sans aucun doute, pour ce nouveau venu sur AB&B)
TONY has perfectively described his wonderful villa in his small text (j'en vanterai ici plus de détails...). He is friendly, very accessible on email and réactive for everything.
he could have say that the housework is done everyday (ménage comme à l'hôtel), like the gardenning, with a very friendly but discret team. The manager, a nice woman will fullfil every wish, thanks to a very good english speaking (ask a taxi, a reservation...), we shared with her a lot of subjects on her country. Tony and them advised us visites to make around the villa: temple, sacred spring (un sacré bain public à ne pas louper). Very good small restaurant across the street (livraison facile). Some others more, with massage and spas, not far along a road with a reasonable trafic, not too noisy (nuisances sonores très modestes la nuit).
The VILLA is very spacious, a lot of light but not hot with a good natural ventilation and the décoration is smart and charming. diffèrent places to have meals, the expression indoor / outdoor is very convenient, and you can see the pool and garden with a lot of flowers. Lovely promenade in the garden is recommanded! the pool is not brand new but little pool for our 2 yo girl was perfect.
Bathrooms are luxuous and very clean.
Kitchen is fine, good fridge, fresh and hot foutain. maybe Tony should put an italian coffee maker, to taste the wonderfull "luwak coffee ".
Air conditionning works well, wifi not fast in every room, tv channels: not many, but who cares, here!
you are in the countryside... so, Nature gives birds living in the région (ah, un ballet d'hirondelles qui vient boire dans la piscine au chant du coq!) helpfull geckos everywhere, some frogs for the mosquitos (moustiquaires sur les baldaquins) but also little bats, some lizards, a few wasps, a mouse... but no snakes! My wife and babygirl lived here peacefully.
there is a 24h présence (mais pas intrusive) to give a secure feeling.
Hope I'll be back soon... if it's available!
