We arrived very late in the evening and were met and shown around. There was coffee and some food for us in the fridge. The villa is in a quiet location but not too far from beaches, mountains and shops. There is a lovely private pool and garden and secure off road parking. As a family of 5 we had a great week. The villa was a cool refuge in the heat of the afternoon with fabulous views from the balconies. Plenty of space for being indoors or out. There was always help on hand from Stella in case we had any questions or needs. Thank you for a wonderful holiday. We'll be back.... one day!
