Excellent equipped villa, in a location which offers views to aid rest and relaxation. Looking forward to returning again and again. Thank you to Vincent for the lovely welcome gift and Caroline for the warm welcome on arrival, great recommendations about what to see and where to eat.

It is located in a very picturesque area and is surrounded by hills and breathtaking scenery. On an evening, as we ate our barbecue, we could hear the bells of the goats on the hillside. The villa is well equipped and comfortable. We had everything that we needed to ensure that our holiday was a success. George was extremely helpful and communication was second to none. Thank you very much for a lovely holiday.
