Fabulous.

5 of 5
We had a super week at this very clean and excellently maintained villa. Set in the hills the views are stunning. All we needed was provided for, including a great welcome pack. The place was extremely secure, which was very reassuring, and if we returned late at night, the place was not in darkness because of security lights and solar lights in the delightful plants that adorn the villa. Highlights for us included visiting the nearby water park and paddle boarding and kayaking on the beautiful lake, with breathtaking views just a short car drive away. I would have preferred a bigger pool as just 8 strokes of forward crawl got me to the other side, but the rest of my family were happy with it, and we all had great fun splashing around. Thank you for a brilliant holiday.
