Beautiful villa in a fantastic location

5 of 5
The location of this villa was fantastic - views over the sea were stunning and being able to walk to the small, pebble cove at the end of the property was such a bonus. Sunsets from here were beautiful! The villa itself was immaculate and had everything that you could need. The area nice and quiet, but with lovely beaches and restaurants within a short distance. Thank you Nicolas

Good property

4 of 5
House was as expected, nice, modern and clean. Close to good beaches. Lovely views of hills from terrace. Well equipped kitchen. Only downside was the outdoor space was a bit unkept so no garden for kids to play in. A bit of confusion and delay over confirmation of booking.
