The view was just amazing,every morning I just loved to sit out with my coffee and marvel at the view. The house was very well stocked , e.g lots of towels , kitchen equipment, a good coffee maker!. We will be returning. I don't think anyone would be disappointed.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

However when we arrived at the Villa it was clear that everything was in fact even better, if possible, than the information we had been given. Right from the start when Mandy and Tony met us in the early hours of the morning at stupid o'clock, and didn't rush explaining the layout of the villa and how everything worked plus the very welcome "welcome pack" which removed any immediate need to worry about shopping first thing the next day. This set us up for what was to remain as a thoroughly relaxing 2 week stay for us all and well suiting all ages from late sixties to 18 months. The property has everything anyone could want with excellent rooms, first class pool and all the facilities you could hope for. This together with Mandy and Tony being so helpful and available to help with advice when needed and the unsurpassed location with the wonderful views made this by far the best villa holiday we have ever experienced. We all look forward to the day we will be able to return to what can only be described as paradise. Thank you so much Mandy and Tony from John and Jill (grandparents), James, Dave, Phil, Josh and Katie (sons and daughter-in-law) plus grandson Joel. xxxxxxx
