Villa Zoe Maria is simply stunning. It was spotlessly clean, modern throughout and perfect in every way………even down to the freshly conditioned bedding and towels which smelt just like home! The patio area is well presented which allows you to enjoy the outdoor living in the sunshine all day. The location is ideal for shopping, the beach, eating out and the cocktail bars, which we tried a few! There were a number of restaurants recommended to us, many of which knew Sue & Steve very well and they made us feel extremely welcome including the odd free desert!! The locals are extremely friendly and they put us to shame as they speak perfect English. A big thank you to Rose & Fred for looking after us during our stay and a huge thank you to Sue for making the booking process pain free and also giving us perfect weather in the middle of October! Thank you Sue for everything, we will be back! Richard & Justine
