It was amazing !

5 of 5
the villa is very big, comfortable and very clean. the pool was also clean and has pool-toys and mattresses so we really enjoy it. when we arrived, the fridge was filled with water bottles, food , fruits and vegetables, milk and more. the kitchen is well accessorized: oven, microwave, dishwasher... enough cleaning materials for all purposes. different kinds of coffee and tea. Every other day the villa is cleaned. the rooms are very comfortable. the hosts are extremely nice and are available for every question or advice. they made dinner for us all on the first day of our arrival and again after a few days. they even gave us a home-made jam to take home with us, which was extremely nice of them. we enjoyed our staying and recommend it to all.
