The Villa is absolutely first class. This is the first time we had been to the Gale area and we weren't disappointed, whilst it is a little spread out there are some fantastic restaurants, Jompra is fantastic and would highly recommend at least one visit there. I would say that you would need a car really unless you are just planning on lazing around the pool. With regard to the pool, it is very deep, 3 meters so those with non swimming children may want to bear that in mind.

A small welcome pack (milk, water etc.) after a long journey would have been very much appreciated. We did have our towels changed, but no bed change during our 10 day stay. The villa was not cleaned at all and I had to spend a morning of my holiday cleaning! The oven was not suitable to accommodate 8 people (no baking trays) but we did manage by using the BBQ every night. Overall the villa was lovely and we had a fantastic holiday.
