I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great relaxing holiday. I thank the owners Michael and Irine for being wonderful hosts.

It was eqipped with everything you could possibly need, the welcome package was spot on and the villa was spotlessly clean. The owners were there to greet us and are so friendly and nice. Very peaceful with beautiful views. It was perfect for us, we'd go back tomorrow if it was possible, the best holiday ever Thanks Steve & Barbs
