The villa is outstanding, well appointed, very private and secure. The welcome pack was ideal including bread and milk, however we did stop at the supermarket before arriving to stock up on supplies not knowing what would be provided on our arrival. Cleaning service was provided on Monday and Thursday which was great. Everything was provided including consumables such as dishwasher tablets, washing machine capsules, toilet tissue, even sponges, shower soap and shampoo. The whole outfit was superb and a welcomed experience for our family to enjoy the most it had to offer.

Everything was nice and clean and it was a perfect location to start trips to the surrounding area. Service was excellent. Little problems were solved immediately, there was always someone available to answer questions or suggest trips or restaurants. We even got fresh eggs from the owner's hens nearly every morning. This place is highly recommendable!!
