Very close to some very good restaurants and local shop. The villa is very spacious with modern style kitchen with all facilities, spacious lounge and dining room, very good Wi-Fi. Upstairs is a spacious double room ensuite, with walk in shower, walk in wardrobe and safe. Lovely balcony with sun beds, and its own private lounge area. Downstairs has two twin bedrooms, both a good size, wardrobe space, which share a bathroom and separate toilet, more suitable for family. Tony and Jackie were there to greet us and show us around, they were both very friendly and helpful during our stay, personal service their priority. They had laid on a handsome Food Welcome Pack which was so useful as on a Sunday the shop was closed, very much appreciated. The only downside which did spoil our stay, was a very noisy pool pump which spoilt sunbathing, and kept switching on at night which hindered sleeping. Eventually turned off and replaced, but this didn't improve. The beds were very firm, and unfortunately for us, for the majority of the week it was very windy at night, consequently the window shutters and frames rattled a lot. It should be noted that nearby they have started working on a building project so a lot of drilling and bagging went on during the weekdays. Lots of lovely walks and beaches nearby, a car is useful as the supermarket is a good walk away. Ideal family villa.

Roof terrace is very good with lovely views towards the sea Everything you need is provided in the Villia. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this Villia
