The Villa was hard to find at first but easy to navigate once we figured out the directions. There were some great beaches five minutes away from the propery. The beach was protected in windy days, with warm waters and excellent restaurants (Tavernas) nearby. The pool was clean and well maintained. The owner was very responsive with any issues we had. We definetly recommend this property!
