The villa is very spacious and has everything you need -with the pool and the built in outside barbeque being the stand out attractions (we pretty much grilled every night!). The owner Sergio was amazing and helped us out with a few things before our stay (including arranging high chair provision for kids) and indeed after the stay by finding a lost wedding ring in the pool filter and returning to us - thanks Sergio!! A car is definitely required as there isn't much in walking distance, but a short drive away finds many lovely towns and beeche beaches. In summary, we all had a great time and would definitely start again.

Went home really relaxed. Would definitely go back again
