Absolutely everything you could possibly have need of has been considered and thoughtfully provided for... The hospitality pack is extensive... Meaning you could if you wished skip food shopping on your first day. Blissfully sunny areas and much needed shady areas at any point in the day.... So you'll be comfortable whatever your mood. Karl and Daphne were so helpful and generous and we feel we have made new friends.....and were at the end of a mobile (provided free of charge) whenever we had need of advice or suggestions. The villa has a visitor's book and all echo how we found the villa. And let's not forget that Moncarapacho has some lovely restaurants... We are quite difficult to please on the restaurant front. The quality of the wine is exceptional. We get ripped off at home! Thank you

They are plenty of outdoor seating areas to choose from and the sun-loungers are very comfortable indeed. The gas barbecue was very convenient and it made our outdoor cooking effortless. The indoor facilities were also more than sufficient albeit we didn't spend too much time indoor other than sleeping and showering. The villa was perfectly located for Fuzeta beach (10 minutes) in a car and Moncarapacho square (5 minutes drive away) was our favourite place to lunch and sit and watch the world go by. Margaret and Jack made us feel very welcoming and their local knowledge was helpful. Definitely a place we want to go back to!
