It was beautfifully cleaned and an added bonus was the return of the cleaners twice to do a quick tidy up, change towels etc. Absolutely everything you could think of was supplied including a cupboard in the kitchen stocked with the basics. Nothing was too much trouble for the agent, Lisa, who was unfailingly cheerful and very responsive to all requests. I have stayed in lots of properties around the world and this was definitely the best. My only criticism is that it is so good that I cannot imagine aother house being as beautiful or comfortable. I wholeheartedly recommend it.

We travelled with our 4 grown up children, plus one partner - plenty of different spaces at the villa both indoors and outside to relax. Great pool. Pool table upstairs also ideal for a competitive family!! A car is essentially. The villa is in a perfect position from which to explore the area. Dave and Susan were really helpful and easily contactable.
