Beautiful villa with great views, very spacious, comfortable and modern

5 of 5
I booked this villa for my mother's 60th birthday and it really was absolutely perfect. Very spacious, great pool, very comfortable beds and all modern appliances you could need. Really nice, different seating areas to allow you to sit back, eat good food and look at the sea views. The kitchen was very well equipped and a very large living area to relax and unwind. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a family/large group holiday.

Great hospitality from the owner and nice villa

5 of 5
Property was clean and well maintained as in the picture. Anastasia the owner has given it a personal touch, was very helpful and welcoming. We had an earlier flight back home, she made an effort to come at 5:30am to say goodbye.
