Condo and Sea Ridge facility's was very nice, clean and quiet in early December. If comfortable in traffic you need hire a car/scooter to go around to see scenery's and shopping. There are many operators to go around but why you like to watch your clock when holidaying? Staff and locals very helpful even with limited English. Local Thai food kitchens beat airport food courts any time. Owner very helpful and appreciate your questions and thoughts. Would love to go again.


Thank you. We do make every effort that you can enjoy your holiday.

Pictures look great, and the actuality of the location and the villa community, swimming pools and balmy tropical splendour is real enough. However, marks lost because: you really do need to hire a car/bike - advert should make this clear and perhaps even link to recommended hirers - people need to accurately budget the overall costs for their hols. There is a daily clean service, but it's just a perfunctory tidy up. There was clear evidence that the villa had not been detail cleaned prior to our arrival - dusty shelves and cupboard interiors, with that musty smell of disuse and neglect. Also a couple of ivory leather settees which are drab and shabby after countless guests' usage and abusage and which let the whole package down, and the biggest fault, the lack of air conditioning in the main ground floor living area. Each of the two bedroom suites have their own air con so we had to improvise by leaving them running with both doors open so the cold air would circulate to the lower floor and bring the temperature down to a tolerable level. Also, the two shower/toilet suites are in need of refurbishment. Overall we enjoyed staying here; the villa is spacious, well laid out and overall a nice place to be. It's just a shame it's suffering perhaps from owner neglect and investment.


Well steven I do appreciate the remarks but I do inform all of my guests that a car is needed and that of course is expected as being on the hill; one has the beautiful sea view while being surrounded by coconut trees which makes a difference from the busy main street on the shoreline. In fact if guests read the reviews before booking it is well stated that a car or bike is recommended so too if you want to visit and travel around the island. Indeed sorry that you did not appreciate our leather settees but will certainly make note of your suggestions but happy that you did enjoy staying at my Villa which I use my self 3 times a year. Thank you for your remark that ' the villa is spacious, well laid out and overall a nice place to be.' Paul Charbonné - Owner

We had the most fantastic holiday, the villa was beautiful in a perfect setting, the facilities within the villa were excellant with everything that we could possible need and more, our only initial concern was when the builders turned up on the unfinished villa next door at 7.30am this obviously caused us some worries but in reality we hardly knew they were there, and when it is is finished it will only add to the lovely surrroundings. We will definately be coming back and would definately book Villa San Souci again


The villa next door is finished and now enhances the entire beauty of the area.

A large private spacious house in the country - exactly as advertised. Lots of room and a good kitchen for cooking if you are inclined. We enjoyed the ability to get out of the big tourist cities, and the local Italians were very friendly. The house is well situated for day trips to the mountains for hiking (Campitella di Matese), archeological tours of Roman ruins (Altilia) or a trip to the beach (Adriatic).

Had an excellent trip and having somewhere as good as this to call home for the time I was there made it even better. A long way from the hustle and bustle. Reccomend renting a car or bike which is inexpensive and takes all the worry out of getting around. The staff were friendly and courteous, the grounds are well kept and the villa immaculate. I will definitly visit again.

What a shame that no one has written a review on this property. It is absolutely like the photographs on website. It is, to be fair, a wonderful and immaculate, plus spacious villa. Staff on complex are superb, pools are immaculate. Views are tremendous. CAR HIRE ESSENTIAL. We did try not to have to hire a car but taxi drivers seem really loathed to go up a hill (sorry, I dont get it either) and try to charge you more, and their word for this is MODERN, I think they mean new complex or something. But if you dont mind hiring a car, then you will be more than happy with this accommodation. The owner Paul, was more than happy to answer any queries. To be fair he has been absolutely brilliant - thank you Paul.
