The villa has every home comfort and is impeccably clean and well kept. The gardens, pool, outdoor kitchen and bbq areas are simply stunning. The space, comfort and cleanliness helped make our holiday as relaxing and fun as possible. Our kids loved the pool and it was impossible to keep them out of it! I have no hesitation in recommending this villa and look forward to returning. It is a true idyll, close to the airport, shops, restaurants though we rarely wanted to leave. Thank you Jennifer.
