There were 4 adults and 6 children ranging from 3 - 8. The villa was well equipped for families and was very spacious. The swimming pool was definitely the highlight for the children and we had difficulty getting them out! The outside eating area was great and used for all our meals. The added bonus of the pool table, ping pong and darts allowed some fun competitions. The local town was a 5 minute walk away and had a reasonable selection of bars cafes and restaurants. The supermarket was well stocked and the local market had some fantastic fresh fruit and veg. The beach was beautiful but busy and we tended to walk down for an hour or so to collect shells and paddle. Overall we had a fantastic time. Thankyou
