We can wholeheartedly and unreservedly recommend this villa and the owner. We cannot fault it. From booking to leaving was a pleasurable experience, any queries were quickly addressed. There is ample room and more for a large family gathering that catered well for all ages from 1 to 70+. The facilities are superb ranging from a bread/pizza oven in the kitchen to games and activities around the pool including a table tennis table. There are extensive grounds to walk in and enjoy. Each day the swimming pool was cleaned early along with the patio areas. We loved being able to pick fresh figs and herbs each day though sadly we were a little early for pomegranates. We were surprised by the owner delivering fresh pastries one morning as well as some bottles of delicious local wine. The area is lovely and the only slight disappointment was that there was no bakery or village store within walking distance.
We had a great holiday at the Purple House, we stayed for 2 weeks during August, 2 adults, 2 teens. The apartment is lovely, very clean and comfortable, there is free wifi and air conditioning in the main kitchen/diner and in one of the bedrooms which was very welcome. The garden is huge and very beautiful, we spent a lot of time relaxing there, our kids are older but if you have younger children the owners have a playhouse and lots of activities and outdoor toys to keep them busy in the garden. Beaches are very close by and there is lots to explore in the local area. The owners could not have been more friendly and helpful and we were made to feel very much at home. Overall a great experience. The only thing I would say that could have been improved on is that there was only one mirror (located in the bathroom) at the property and with teenage girls that resulted in a lot of waiting for the bathroom! It would have been great if there had been some mirrors in the bedrooms as well.
