Amazing big villa in the green with stunning view

5 of 5
We stayed at the villa with 4 adults and two kids (age 2). It is a very big and over the top clean villa with an amazing bbq area and two perfect clean pools. There are also many toys for kids. The kitchen is very good and stufft sufficiently. There was a cleaning service which cleaned the house twice when we were there (new linen and towles were provided). The pool was cleaned daily. Opposite of the villa are two donkeys which are kids loved feeding. There is also e high-end dryer and washing maschine. It was very easy to get hold of the owner. The villa has two beds for kids and two chairs for kids provided. We would recommend to villa no doubt. You could even go there with more people. The neighbourhood is very quiet and friendly. We had a very good time!

Amazing 5 star holiday

5 of 5
Villa Orchidea is the place if you want a true relaxed and beautiful holiday. The views from the vila and garden are great, and the pool area feels very private. The welcome given by the owners is very warm, and the attention to keeping the property clean during your stay feels very nice. The villa is equipped with everything you can possibly need, from bathrobe to a waffle machine. Thanks again for this, a true 5 star holiday.
