It is very quiet and peaceful, the only sounds are the birds, the goat bells, and the water in the pool moving. A perfect escape from the outside world, even if we did actually have wifi too :-) The villa is clean and spacious, has everything you need. We do recommend a car, and a strong heart to cope with the tiny roads. Having the instructions to get to the villa including GPS coordinates was a life saviour when arriving in the dark. We spent most of the time here, ventured out to the local taverna above the Inka shop, and a couple of other locations. But we came for the peace and the view - and that was perfect!!! Love it - fully recommend. Communications in advance were also really good.
