The villa was beautiful, clean and exceptionally spacious. The owners could not do enough, their hospitality was very welcoming and nothing was too much. There is a lot for the children to keep themselves entertained with, hide an seek being their favourite, with so much space available to them. The village is about 10/15 min walk and has some nice taverns and restaurants. The people are extremely friendly and the beach is very clean. The weather wasn't hot but it was pleasant during the day, needing sweaters / cardigans in the evening. Overall a great break and we would most certainly visit again.

The property was beautifully maintained and very comfortable and peaceful. What we liked most was the fact that we could easily walk to the local village, have lunch and a look around. In addition, it was just a short car ride to the beach and other towns with some great bars and restaurants. We would definitely recommend the property to our friends/relatives. Wish we could have stayed longer. We'll be back, for sure!
