A little piece of heaven that was almost perfect...
Villa IL Portico is a exquisitely gorgeous and immaculate villa located on a mountain side in Verbania Italy. Before, I discuss the property further, I must explain that I’m a rookie when it comes to organizing a portion of our vacation from a online site like Vrbo. Yet, Vrbo staff was very professional and courteous with any needs or concerns that I had. This property is own by Sergio Tacchini. I understand Sergio owns all three gated homes located along this mountain side. Alessandro Tacchini is the property manager for Villa IL Portico and she was very accommodating. Alessandro, permitted my family to stay for a 4-night stay instead of the minimum 5-night required online. I thank Alessandro for that. Now, let’s get to the guts of this review. If you are lucky enough to stay at this property a vehicle is an absolute must with approximately12 twists and turns up the mountain side. The roads are very narrow with traffic in both directions which will require pulling over from time to time. With careful execution an experience driver can certainly negotiate to and from the villa. Now, not everything was perfect, so let me explain. I mention earlier that this is a gated villa along with two other villas. The first gate takes you to the entrance of the three villas the other takes you to your individual villa. Sadly, to say the the electronic gate providing access to our villa did not work for our entire stay. Thank goodness there was a key override. We notified our property contact person Nicolette early on regarding this issue but no one addressed this concern during our stay. Regarding Nicolette she was peasant but trying to communicate in English was more than difficult. Thank goodness my father-in-law speaks fluent Italian otherwise this wouldn’t have gone well. Also, it seemed that Nicolette must of had a previous engagement upon our arrival. We certainly felt pressed for time. There’s a lot to discuss about this property we could have used more time with Nicolette. Regarding the list of villa amenities you will notice a listing for a washer & dryer. We used the washer but their was no dryer, unless the washer doubles as a dryer. If that’s the case I apologize. In addition the property lists air conditioning but not in the magnificent great room where you spend most of your time. For about $1000 a night with all the extras it should’ve had air-conditioning. The pool was absolutely amazing and views over looking the mountains are phenomena.
Hello William , tks for the nice words . We'll try to improve adding dryers ( unfortunately there was one ... ) . Sad to hear the electronic gate was not working well ( first time we are noticed about this , we'll change the batteries to the remote control ) . As far as air conditioning is concerned it is very unlikely to have living rooms with ac in the area and in most cases ( old properties especially ) also rooms come without air conditioned . Kind rgds Alessandro ... sorry I have missed your call !
