Caroline met us on arrival and was very helpful and welcoming, and even left us some food and drink. Caroline also recommended some fabulous places for us to visit that weren't too far from the villa. The villa itself was spotless and well maintained - the photos are very realistic. All the bedrooms are well sized and the main living area is spacious. The outside veranda was great for dining in the sunshine and we made good use of the BBQ! We couldn't wait to get in the pool which was perfect for cooling off, and inside the air conditioning units were very welcome at night. The villa had a private feel and the outside area always had both sunny and shady spots. It's situated at the end of the complex which meant it was quiet and perfect for relaxing. It's only a short drive to some of the local beaches which are beautiful. Thank you for a great holiday!

Loved the fact the sunbeds were still free at 10.00 am. The village had everything u need but we drove the the big supermarket to stock up. But drove to village everyday for fresh bread.
