The location of the villa is perfect for those wanting to escape from it all, but is only a short drive from the main National road and has two delightful tavernas within a few minutes walk. The villa was clean and very well equipped and Mark was very helpful with any questions we had about the area etc. All in all a super holiday thanks Mark!

Comfortable bedroom, plenty of storage. Large sea facing balcony and the only apartment with an awning for shade. The owners provide pool towels and a collection of parasols & cool bags for the beach. The best feature is the private roof terrace with fabulous views of sea and mountains, comfortable furnishings, electric BBQ and fridge. Also there is a good range of plastic tableware for the outdoor lifestyle. Would highly recommend - we will definitely return.
