The kitchen was lacking a few key pieces of equipment for those of us who like to cook - no baking trays and only one oven proof dish, no potato peeler. There was no sun lounger but we really enjoyed the choice of terraces/verandahs. Shame that the main terrace was open to the terrace of the apartment adjacent which meant no privacy. The jacuzzi in upstairs bathroom was not working but we were not informed until our arrival. The villa is on the flight path for planes approaching the airport when the wind is northerly - the double glazing ensures a quiet night tho and the air conditioning was super quiet. But these were all small things and overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Essential to hire a car - villa a goodish walk from the irregular buses.
