Guest Reviews for Villa Alba
The property is a magical place, taking you back in history, yet with all the modern amenities. We were only 8 (6 adults and 2 children), but you can easily fill the house with triple that number. The caretakers is the house are very attentive, responsive, and deeply care about the property. The gardens are vast, and you can enjoy walks and just exploring the property every day. The pool is amazing on a hot day and cools you right down. The location is superb, where one can easily walk to town, yet feel secluded enough from the rest of the world once inside the property gates. Alessandro is a wonderful host. We asked if he could leave tennis racquets for us to play with and he made sure there were new racquets and tennis balls available to us. As well as making sure the court was suitable for play. It was the extra touch that made this visit and stay even more special.
