All was as we had found it the first time - a bright, spacious and immaculately cleaned villa with a very generous welcome pack and a really helpful host (thank you Dennis). The weather wasn't as good for us on our second visit but the addition of the hot tub more than compensated for this and it was a great place to while away cooler evenings. Delighted to recommend this villa and the wider area and already planning a return visit!
