The highlight though was the villa itself - we felt like film stars!. The apartment is stylish, spotlessly clean and the view is to die for. Gary & Glenys were very welcoming and offered lots of advice on where to visit and where to eat. There were plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from all within a ten minute drive of the villa.

It is within 3 minutes walk of the local village with amenities, & within a 3 minute drive down the hill to the sea. The villa was all it was advertised to be & very comfortable. It is South facing overlooking the sea, so the sun is around most of the day from about 10am
