We had a wonderful stay at Casa Bassa–the house is every bit as beautiful as the pictures, and the pool and grounds are stunning. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds and sitting areas were very comfortable. We did some exploring in nearby towns, but also spent some days just relaxing at the house and enjoying the pool and the beautiful views from the patio. Cynthia, the housekeeper, was extremely helpful–available whenever we needed her but not obtrusive. She prepared two delicious meals for us and we also hired a local cook one night and enjoyed fantastic meals in several of the nearby restaurants. We highly recommend the villa and hope to have the chance to return.
