Bruno was wonderfully communicative and check in and out was seamless. Would highly recommend the villa and Bruno as a manager.

Beautiful décor throughout, lovely pool with plenty of space to enjoy the comfortable sun loungers in a private setting. We thoroughly enjoyed the use of the BBQ. The roof terrace is simply gorgeous and ideal for those lazy breakfasts or cocktails. The beach and restaurants are only a 10 minute walk away. We could not have asked for a better holiday and would certainly recommend to either couples or families alike. You will not be disappointed. 5 Star throughout.
