Alison ( villa manager ) is always at hand on phone or text to deal with any queries you may have and is very polite and helpful. Advisory to hire a car, but we didn't and taxis were easy enough and around 20 euros each way into town/ supermarket etc. Only 15 mins from airport which also cost around 20 euros. Ideal for those looking for villa accomdation but unable to drive. Heather the owner was very accomdating and a pleasure to speak too. We will 100% be back and are missing it already! Xx

Inviting swimming pool and patio area. Estoi closeby with friendly shops and a well positioned cafe in front of the church to sit and watch the world go by! Roman ruins in the town are fascinating and well worth a visit. Easy to get to the coast but also great for striking out into hinterland. Lots to do if you want to but equally the villa is a great place to lay back, rest and enjoy the sun and a swim. We'll definitely return; great stay. Thanks.
