Fully equipped kitchen, really had everything you could possibly need. An exceptional welcome pack which suited us and our hungry hoard perfectly. As for the out door areas and pool... WOW, we all used it everyday, was helped by the amazing weather, again everything you could want was supplied. The outdoor kitchen felt like your own private taverna!! Melissa and Clive are the perfect hosts, and were there to answer all our questions with suggestions of where to eat and shop, days out, taxis etc... Can't wait to go back, the most perfect Holiday.
