Lovely place - great pool

5 of 5
My family and I stayed at the villa for a week at the end of August and it was perfect for us. The pool was fantastic and the kids loved it. The house is a nice size with two good size bedrooms and living space and equipped with everything we needed. The views are really great too. Thanks for a lovely stay.
