Vor allem der Blick aufs Meer. Die Villa ist sehr durchdacht und wunderschön eingerichtet. Es ist an Geschirr und Haushaltsgeräten wirklich alles vorhanden. Die Waschmaschine und der Trockner sind auch super und funktionieren einwandfrei. Die Villa ist sehr großzügig geschnitten, sodass auch jeder wirklich seinen Freiraum hat und sich zurück ziehen kann. Was auch sehr toll ist, dass extra Klo oben neben dem Wohnraum. Man muss nicht immer vom Pool aus in sein Badezimmer um auf Toilette zu gehen. Der Pool, die Loungecke, der Essbereich draßen und der Grill sind genial. ;) In der Zeit in der wir dort waren, war es wirklich sehr ruhig, was schön war, da man wirklich gut entspannen konnte. Was wirklich auch sehr toll ist, ist die Dusche neben dem Pool. Man kann sich dort einfach auch mal kurz abkühlen. :) Die Schlafzimmer, sowie die dazugehörigen Badezimmer sind auch super. Es waren genügend Handtücher vorhanden und es war alles sehr sauber und ordentlich. In jedem Schlafzimmer, sowie im Wohnzimmer, waren Fernseher vorhanden. Wir haben auch deutsche Programme empfangen. Das Einzige was ein bisschen Schade war, dass keine Sonnenschirme vorhanden waren, da es bei den Liegen um die Mittags/Nachmittagszeit schon sehr warm war. Der Weg zum Haus ist leider noch nicht geteert. Es ist ein Schotterweg, den man ein wenig Bergauf fahren muss. Aber es geht. Alles in allem, ist das Haus einfach nur ein Traum und wunderschön. Man kann es nur empfehlen und wir würden dort sofort wieder Urlaub machen. Danke an Sandi, den Besitzer des Hauses und seinen Freund Scecko, der uns empfangen hat. Sie waren immer sehr hilfsbereit, wenn man Fragen hatte.
