                                                                                                      5 of 5

Clearly the villa and contents are to a high standard and it is one of two properties in a quiet cul de sac with ample parking. A car is necessary. There are good restaurants within minutes and a big supermarket is only a 12 - 15 minute drive. We have stayed in many villas and agree this was the best. Thanks to Lucia
