The Kitchen is very well equipped and we really liked the facilities provided. All of the rooms are spacious and the villa is extremely clean and tidy. The swimming pool is the perfect size for a large group. We found this villa to be almost faultless. There are some great restaurants close by, however you may need a car, there is an excellent restaurant within walking distance. The beach in Altura is stunning, golden sand and crystal clear water. Kate the lady who manages the villa is extremely freindly and very helpful. We hope to return very soon.

Kids loved the swimming pool and outdoor games and it wasn't too far away from all the local facilities as long as you had a car. We did find that a large proportion of restaurants and holiday attractions had already closed down for the season but for us that wasn't a major problem. Weather was all we hoped for and the neighbours and locals very friendly when looking for help or advice. We would certainly recommend the villa to anyone but some upgrading of facilities need addressing. The TV is an old model and doesn't allow the kids to plug in any games or cables, the double beds are squeaky when you move and therefore don't give the best nights sleep (not helped by neighbours dogs barking...see other reviews) and the kitchen facilities aren't geared up for large parties even though it is a 10/12 birth villa. In particular not enough big pans to cook a meal in and the fridge space for large parties is limited. I have to stress these are minor details in order to make the stay even more enjoyable and they certainly wouldn't stop us from returning, just a little more attention to detail feedback
