From sending us directions from the airport to the villa, supplying fresh eggs, and being a source of useful local information. The villa is spacious, modern, and has everything one needs. With views over the village one way, and across countryside to the sea another way, the villa is in the perfect peaceful location. I highly recommend it. Andy Hennigan - May 2017
