It is extremely well stocked with everything you could need without feeling cluttered.The pool is a very welcome relief from the heat and there is more than enough space to eat there in the evening. Or if you fancy it there is also an upstairs terrace! The villa is about 15 minutes walk down into the town and there are also restaurants about 5 minutes walk away. Can highly recommend a stay here.
