Maison de vacances Le Cigale ★★★★
The villa is of a very high standard with all amenities provided. It is also very well stocked with all the essentials you sometimes find missing when booking a place to stay i.e cutlery, crockery, glasses, coffee making machines, iron & ironing board etc. The downside of the villa was that we had air conditioning included in the price but the units were not connected to the compressor so they only acted as a fan? In June it was not much of a problem but in high season I would recommend that this is clarified before booking. Also if you are new to driving on the continent or just a cautious driver the road up the mountain might prove a problem as well as the off road approach to the villa! This was not a problem to us which led us to have a fantastic holiday in one of the best villas we have ever rented. It will be hard to find something in the area of such a high standard and will definitely a company we will use again.
This villa is located approx 12km from Sperlonga & 6km from Itri. Surrounded by beautiful Italian countryside, with hills all around, the views here are stunning. The villa is approached down a track from the main road. It is a private location, accessed through a pair of Iron gates. The detached villa is set in its own grounds with a fantastic pool, in landscaped gardens, with brick barbeque. There are sevela tables on the patio for eating outside too. The villa itself has three double bedrooms (one downstaitrs), all tastefully decorated. The upstairs bedrooms have access to a balcony. Beds are all very comfortable & come with sheets & duvets. The kitchen is well equipped, with a full kitchen and all cooking utensils & well stocked with kitchen equipment. There is a lovely TV / lounge area with doors opening up onto the the garden - it is a fantastic room, being light & airy. The dining area & lounge in the villa is a little dark & the lighting here could do with some improvement. That having been said, we mostly spent our time outdoors or in the lounge area. 2 things to note: You will need a car in this remote location. Nearest shops in itri - 6km. The access road is very winding & more like a track in some places - so some people may be pout off by this. But it's an adventure! Secondly, there is no internet connection here, but we could get a mobile signal. There is satellite TV & some channels are in English (but limited). Overall, a great place to stay if you like peace & quiet, with your own private pool. Only downside I found personally, was having to drive everywhere as it was not possible to walk to local shops etc.
