Ideal location for exploring and restaurants close by in a car. If we decide to do this holiday again we would definitely book this villa. Jane the manager and Maggie the owner could not be praised enough.Highly recommend it.

The villa is spacious and luxurious and well equipped with all needed for a very enjoyable holiday. The outside area is well designed and attractive with generous seating areas and the pool is delightful and was thoroughly enjoyed on a daily basis by all of our party. There is a lovely restaurant a short stroll from the villa (Amadeus) where we were made very welcome and were served delicious food. The owner, Bob, has been great at communicating with us and provided very good service. If it wasn't already booked we would definitely visit Villa Mimosa again.

The outdoor area was excellent , the pool was big enough to swim in and was kept clean , the apartment had everything that was required, perhaps a small microwave would be a plus but apart from that absolutely no complaints.We will be returning to this place. Thank you Markus & Sandra for your hospitality.
