There was nothing I didn't like.
A part of me is reluctant to enthuse as much as I should about the experience of visiting Villa Ricanda - as I want to keep it as a secret, feeling sure that if it gets there will be permanent unavailability of rooms! But I have to give credit where due and no more so deservedly than here.
The value for money is incredible, and the hosts are exceptional. They are warm, welcoming, attentive when required, but sensitive and discrete always; so just there when you need them. They are so helpful and flexible and have thought of all the little touches from a consumer viewpoint.
I visited with my 21 year old daughter: they met us at the airport, provided a taxi service at a much better rate than taxis, offered lots of useful advice, and were excellent company. They are flexible, pleasant, accommodating and easy going.
The 6 letting rooms are in a horseshoe shape overlooking the terrace, swimming pool, gardens and views. We had breakfast at a time of our choosing and it was lovely, sitting on the patio directly outside our room in the warmth of the morning sun. Everything was fresh and standards high at breakfast as in all else: lovely warm bread, fresh coffee, juice, meats, cheeses, croissants, perfectly cooked eggs, jams etc.
Although we were on a bed and breakfast board, we found it very convenient to find that there were 2 huge fridges packed with cold drinks, alcoholic and soft, snacks, chocolate, ice creams etc, at virtually cost price.
We also enjoyed relaxing in the evening on the huge sofas in the communal living room, watching one of our hosts DVD's.
Extremely good value for money and I would heartily recommend. In fact I am returning in a few days!
