It really is a wonderful place with fantastic views of the sea and the harbour. It is tastefully decorated and well-equipped and everything was exactly as described. Andrea and Lara are lovely people and provided some very useful advice and suggestions for visits during our stay. We used the bikes provided during our stay - the cycle track is wonderful! We cannot find any faults with the property and would highly recommend a stay here - you will not regret it!

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    The villa's location is stunning, and it also proved very suitable for our three generational family of nine - which included a four year old and a toddler. The pool area is gated, and the surrounding balustrade keeps everyone safe from falls. The facilities are excellent and clean. The whole villa is well equipped. Maureen and Ernesto were friendly and helpful on arrival and departure. Andree, the owner answered all our information requests in a very responsive manner. We had a wonderful time. The views from the terraces are breathtaking. The pool is a good size, and was unobtrusively maintained throughout our stay by Ernesto. One point to note: If you are not a relaxed driver you might struggle on the road to the villa as it is steep in places, with some narrow, sharp bends on a few sections along the valley-side. However, this in not untypical of the area. This villa is simply wonderful. Go there and enjoy. We guarantee you won't find it easy to leave!
