“The reason for this holiday was to celebrate my very ancient birthday. We were a party of adults who were impressed with the splendid amenities and the more than adequate space for 8 grown ups to wander about. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and whilst the pool was top of the list it was closely followed by splendid competitions on the poolsnooker table....memories of long past years! The location of the house was wonderful, and within a stone's throw of some wonderful walks for the more fitter of the party. There is so much to see and do around this area. Lastly, like previous reviewers have stated a BIG thanks to Tracie who was an extremely helpful and attentive person during our stay.”

“Absolutely loved La Villa. Its very well located, private and homely. The pool was amazing and we felt the different levels of the house helped us separate the kids when they went to bed and us watching tv without disturbing them. The garden was lovely and we had everything we needed. The host had fantastic communication with us the entire time and really made us feel welcome. We will definitely return. ”

“A wonderful house with an excellent pool which kept all the members of our family from myself (77) to my grandson (1) happy throughout the week come sun or come rain. Proximity to Brighton's attractions. Design of rooms and number of televisions allowed everybody to "do their own thing " as well as getting together, Fascinating pictures and decor with a good selection of books and games.”

“Birthday celebration (7 ladies) great property, very spacious & with a good size swimming pool. The surroundings of the property are beautiful & the courtyard is beautifully surrounded by the entire property. If you dont want to be in the crowded part of Brighton this is the place to book & youre not far from Brighton CenterPier. The owner of the property was always at hand if we needed anything & the service we received from start to finish was impeccable! Would definitely stay here again! Thank you Original Cottages! ”

“My family had an amazing time at La Villa; such a stunning property, and the owner was extremely helpful. We felt as if we were on holiday abroad, rather than in England because of the layout and the look of the property. The indoor pool kept the kids entertained for hours. We've had a great holiday. Thank you!”
