About the Owner

Hello,

We are Rosario and Antonio , the owners of the Villa Maria.

We live and work nearby in the village of Vidreres but our daughter Maria-Jose lives nearby and has her own small therapy clinic.

We're originally from a small, and very beautiful village called "Cabra de Cordoba" in Andalusia, but have been living and working in Catalunya for over 40 years!

We have 2 grown up children and 4 grandchildren that were all born here and who, as you can imagine, keep us very busy!

Great family holiday in a great house

  • 4 of 5

Had a great family break in this villa for 10 days. Rosario & Antonio where really accommodating even bringing an extra when requested!! Reading the previous review they did show up to water the plants. This wasn't intrusive and we were aware.

Good location in a quiet residential area with lovely views and close to little villages with plenty of shops, restaurants and supermarkets.

Booking this holiday through Sara was a delight as she answered all my questions.

If given the option to take the upstairs part I would recommend as its modern and has AC in the bedrooms.

The pool was great and the kids loved it.

The shaded areas definitely helped with small children to avoid being in he sun all day.

The house is large and has several areas to relax. All the applicances were good. Handy being able to wash your clothes rather than doing it at home!!!

We would definately recommend this and will be in contact with them soon to book for next summer.

Thanks for all your help in making it a great family holiday.

Olly & Georgina, Dorset

Great holiday with few dark clouds.

  • 3 of 5

House and location was very good. The house is better than the pictures tell. Very clean and well maintained. Owners came few mornings without any warning for pool cleaning and gardening. One morning there was a man in garden who did not introduce himself at all (maybe some kind of repairman?) Wifi worked only few days. Owners do not speak or understand any english so the house introduction is in spanish. (In house info sheet it says that they can speak english) Problems with safety deposit returning. The coffeemaker broke during our visit so we had to pay it. Thanks to god it wasn´t aircondioner or tv No I do not recommend this house if you cannot speak Spanish.

Owner's Response: I'm really very sorry that you disagree about the 25€ that Antonio discounted from your deposit , but he says that the coffee machine was working before your arrival , that the chair wasn't broken and these were the 2 things that he charged you for . (I'm sure you'll agree, not a huge amount for these items.) and, as you had had some problems with the WIFI, he returned the full additional charge for that. He wasn't trying to upset you but only deducting for the items damaged , which is what the security deposit is taken for here in Spain. Antonio does speak a little English and it's never been a problem during the past years that they've been renting out. However, with you leaving at 03.30 in the morning, and in a stressful situation , he obviously had difficulty explaining the charge to you. However he does most sincerely apologize for any misunderstanding between you caused by his lack of English at the time. I know by your SMS messages to me during your holiday, that you did have a "great fun holiday " and as you also wrote "the house is awesome", so I do hope that you can remember as well all of these good things and will return another year!
