Fantastic family break

5 of 5
The Villia is close to the minimarket, restaurants, bars and beach yet is also quiet. 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

Excellent villa, perfect location

5 of 5
The villa was absolutely fantastic, it had all of the equipment and comfort you are looking for when wanting a lovely week away with family. Although there was only three of us (2 adults and an 18 month old) we love s the space that the villa offered and the outside area was great. Although there was a limited view, it was so peaceful and private which we really appreciated. The bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchen were all lovely, and the twice weekly clean was very welcome. Thank you to all of the staff that attended the villa, they did a great job. We did unfortunately have a power cut the first three nights but as soon as the team at the Principal office found out they rectified the problem within the hour - which was a short in the external lights. The only delay was due to the cyber attack as we didn't realise our messages weren't getting through initially. Florence was so helpful prior to arrival and answered all of our questions. The welcome basket on arrival was very welcome after a 4.30am start to get there. The villa is located perfectly, restaurants in walking distance, a supermarket and beach also in walking distance but we had hired a car which made things much easier with a little one. Gale beach was beautiful and we spent each morning there which our daughter loved and then afternoons out or by the pool. If you hire a car and don't want to spend a small fortune on food, there is an Aldi on site next to makro where we saved a small fortune but got some delicious food. Overall, we would highly recommend this villa, and although we don't usually return to the same place twice we would definitely consider it a small it was so good for a family holiday.
