We chose this villa largely because we were visiting in April and it had a heated pool. As a result, our kids spent hours playing happily in the pool! The four double bedrooms were each en-suite and the kitchen was very well equipped. The welcome pack of groceries (and beer!) was very welcome when we arrived later than expected due to a delayed flight.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      Being a first-timer, we did have reservations about the property and location but thankfully everything met our expectations. The villa is located in a rural area so the closest supermarket is a 25 min walk away or 5 mins by cab. The taxis are very prompt and arrive within 10 mins, however the return journey back to the villa was troublesome - I had the location of the villa pinned to my offline Google maps so had to direct many drivers back to the location. The villa itself was immaculate, we had the bare essentials provided when we arrived which included, milk, bread, eggs and other bits which was nice. The rooms were clean and everything was as we expected it to be. We had cleaners at the villa 2-3 times in the week we were there . The slight issue we did experience was hot water which seemed to only run hot during the afternoon - dead cold in the morning. We did contact the management regarding this but on the first day the office was closed, on the second day nobody was answering the phone, when we finally did make contact they sent a plumber around to address the issue - as he explained the hot water is supplied via the solar panels on the roof - this was switched over to use both electric and solar power which corrected problem a few days later. Wifi in the house was available in all areas and the speed was steady and enough for our 7 -8 devices. If you are travelling around the area then I would recommend a hire car as this would save on taxis. Arranging a transfer from the airport cost us 75 EUR each way via taxi (7 seater) so this was slightly more than expected. The local supermarket (Apolonia) is the equivalent of UK Waitrose so prices are more expensive here than you would find in Lidl/Aldi which are a little farther away. Overall, we had a nice holiday, the kids enjoyed the time at the villa with the pool and play rooms as did the adults. The booking process was easy, and our arrival/departure process was laid out clearly so we had no issues. Highly recommended
