There are few things better than sipping your favourite tipple while watching the sun set behind the crescent beach. The beach itself is sandy and clean and is just a few minutes walk down the hill. We walked a little further through the beautiful pine forest, and found an area with a lifeguard and despite being early August and wonderfully hot, the beach was not crowded. The property was well kept and well equipped. There are neighbouring properties so you don’t feel isolated, but you are not overlooked so enjoy total privacy. The gardens and private pool were a perfect retreat and were maintained on a daily basis. There is also a private parking space. The property itself has two main bedrooms: a double upstairs and a twin downstairs. Both have air conditioning, which in August was essential. There is additional accommodation in a separate building in the garden (but we did not use this) and there is also a single bed on the upstairs landing though this does not have air conditioning. The bathroom is on the main floor. There is a good size, comfortable lounge with a fan (and an open fire), however with so much excellent outdoor space we didn’t use this very much either. There is a large patio area outside with table and chairs. Our family of four (2 adults + 2 teenagers) enjoyed a wonderful week in this property – it is perfect if you want to relax or if you enjoy a beach style vacation. There are also some lovely medieval towns perched on top of the hills where you can stop for lunch or an ice-cream – but always take your swimming stuff as there is invariably an opportunity for a swim. The owners of this property are extremely helpful and respond to questions very promptly – We highly recommend this property.

Beautiful setting and nicely appointed interior in this recently finished home. We have no complaints and regrets, just great memories. I am not sure that the location on the home placed on the map really corresponds with the location of the home. It largely faces toward south, not west; but the views are still quite nice. One small suggestion is to outfit the house with proper grilling equipment, otherwise it is useless to state that there is a BBQ; also some instructions in multiple languages for how to operate the two TVs would be good.
