Whilst we didn't use the pizza oven, we certainly made good use of the BBQ and alfresco dining. The shaded area outside was great and enough room to put the sun beds so we could sit Out of the sun with our baby. Excellent welcome from the owners. The fridge and cupboards had been filled with all essentials which was amazing as we arrived late at night and we had a lovely surprise when the lady bought an amazing home made apple and cinnamon cake round to the villa as a treat. Would recommend having a car so that you can get around but there are 2 lovely tavernas, 1 on the beach and both in walking distance with nice food and always a warm welcome. The view from the villa is stunning, we shall miss waking up and looking out at the beautiful sea. Thank you so much to Stella and her family.
