Reviews

Villa Cornelia was absolutely perfect for our very large group that filled all 12 rooms of this stunning estate. Our time here couldn't have been better. The rooms and common areas of the villa were tasteful, spacious, and well looked-after; the grounds, extensive and colorful with local flora, were beautifully maintained, and the staff was both attentive and discreet. Our group consisted of six families, a mix of adults, teens, and young children, and everyone was happy: there was no end to the discoveries around the property - extensive lawns, lush orange groves, hidden caves, courtyards, verandas, and surprise retreats. Our meals were delicious and all of the staff were sweet and amenable to our many and varied dietary needs. A wonderful experience for everyone that I would highly recommend. We were so well looked after in the kitchen! We weren't sure what to expect regarding food preparation as we had only pre-arranged a few meals... but the staff was always willing and eager to prepare meals for us whenever it was needed. - Sara W.
