Lovely villa great location

4 of 5
We stayed 2 weeks at this lovely villa and it accommodated all of our needs. Villa in a lovely area near Altura strip where the bars and restaurants are. Andy the owner was very helpful throughout our stay just a message away. Pool was perfect my 2 year old and 7month old they loved it. I do recommend a car to get out and explore as beach is a good half hour walk and bars and restaurants just before it. Once again Andy thank you for letting us stay in your lovely Villa.
