This villa is located in a very good quiet and relaxing location. Details and pictures provided were accurate and on arrival it looked as we expected. We would certainly visit again and would recommend the villa and surrounding area to friends and family. In particular we were impressed with the customer service, feeling very welcomed and catered for.

We had a wonderful experience staying here

5 of 5
When we arrived we were greeted and shown around by Michaela, the owner of the villa - everything was spotless and there was even a bowl of fruit in the kitchen and flowers in all the bedrooms! The pool was wonderfully warm and we had nice weather the entire duration of our stay - with the beach nearby, clubs, water sports and shops we were spoilt for choice with things to do! We had an unforgettable experience staying here
