Absolutely perfect

5 of 5
We had an amazing holiday here. The villa was perfect, very clean and comfortable. The area was great with local shops, supermarkets and restaurants. But the best bit was the pool....the warmest we've ever had and with great views over the sea.

Wonderful stay

5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this villa and it's beautiful surroundings. Andre was very helpful. My only suggestion would be for a couple of fans. It can get quite hot and I wasn't happy to leave the doors open at night.
