Lovely beaches only a short drive away. The villa is spacious with plenty of room for the whole family to enjoy their holiday. All areas of the villa are well equipped and the air conditioning is available in all rooms. The kitchen would benefit from an update but nevertheless it was well equipped and everything is in working order. Pool and grounds are very well maintained. There are beautiful views from the upper terrace of the sea and the sunsets are beautiful. We had a lovely holiday and hope to return.
