Perfect place for family holiday

5 of 5
Words can't describe how truly amazing our stay at this house was. We had a last minute change of houses, and owners was so accommodating and helpful in transferring us and helping us to get settled. The pictures of the house truly do not do it justice. The views are beyond stunning and the outside space is so beautiful and serene, we never wanted to leave the house because it was so relaxing to be there. We will miss our morning breakfasts out on the terrace overlooking the sea, and of course the amazing pool that was heated for us till 30 degrees(it was one of reason to chose this villa because of small kids). The house is a very clean and really perfect for using. Kitchen it was favorite place for my wife. It's have everything as in our home and even when we didn't know where we can find some devices for cooking Irina always came in 10 minutes and help us with any issues. Irina is the perfect host. She is welcoming available and accommodating. Everything is easy and works out perfectly with her. During our holiday she was eight months pregnant with another child of 1.5 years, but despite this she was reacts really quickly to our requests. Since we rested in November it was already the end of the season and most of the places were closed, Irina has made a great program for us, where we can get all necessary goods for children and wich places we could visit that time.I recommend staying with her for anyone. Do not hesitate in booking this house, we made so many unforgettable memories with our family here!
