Location, location, location it doesn’t get better

5 of 5
Location, location, location it doesn’t get better than this. I was so surprised to arrive here and find such a lovely villa in such a superb location. We all spent many hours on the sun terraces enjoying the beautiful sea view. The swimming pool was excellent, secluded away in the hillside with the most amazing views of the mountains and sea. Peter and Alison obviously read the reviews and act quickly, we found the villa spotlessly clean with lots of extra towels, and a new larger barbeque. The cleaner was so kind, she even gave us fresh eggs laid that day. We rented a villa for fourteen days and were very pleased with the facilities, which were perfect for a family of five. The privacy and facilities within the villa were very good. There is also a supermarket just a short drive away , which was very well stocked. This is without any doubt one of the best holiday villas we have visited. The Villa was exceptional. There isn't anything negative I can say. We all had the most fantastic time. We are sad we cannot stay here forever! Looking forward to returning next year, thank you.

Great villa and amazing holiday

5 of 5
We had an amazing time at the villa. We were a group of 10 people with kids, adults and more senior people and we all enjoyed. Great fun with the pool and the games, and the local villages are extremely nice , with great food. Also very good value for money, we highly recommend .
