The villa is very spacious, with the area by the pool having great views over the sea and nearby cove. A good location within walking distance of a few bars and restaurants (or morning coffee in Bengali watching the boat trips depart).
We arrived at the villa assuming we'd be met as we had not received any details prior to our arrival. So arriving Sunday evening to find no one at the property was a bit frustrating. But a call to the security company soon got us put through to Rene and we were in (we had no contact details for Rene).
The property has 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms (there was no shower room). A well equipped kitchen and very spacious lounge and separate dining area - although with warm weather we ate outside all the time (a seating area under cover and generally in the shade).
The swimming pool was a good size, and warm, with a pool cleaner on site 2/3 times a week.
The tennis courts on the complex were very good - never had a problem getting on to play - but strangely you couldn't hire tennis rackets but you could hire tennis balls. There are no tennis rackets with the villa - I think this would be a good addition.
A number of options for groceries. Our favourite was Apolonia - an upmarket Waitrose. The food was excellent (but with that comes higher prices) - but the meat we bought for the BBQ was superb.
We visited in June, which seemed to coincide with the seagulls rearing their chicks. They are very territorial and would dive bomb us as we walked around the pool (this was exacerbated by one of the chicks getting blown off the roof and settling in under the sun loungers). Sharing the pool with the seagulls was not an issue, but a consequence of having seagulls around all the time is the amount of bird poo which was left around the pool and on the pool cover (overnight).
Overall a very enjoyable stay, with excellent weather, friendly people and lovely beaches and cliff top walks.
