She showed us around the property. The villa is lovely and spacious with a large curved stone staircase going through the house, there is a ground floor bedroom with bathroom, 2 1st floor bedrooms with bathroom and a further 4 th bedroom in a separate annex which is the tower part of the building! It's ideal if travelling with large families like we were - children and grandparents. We stayed in twice and used the barbecue and outside seating area which was brilliant- it's lovely all lit up and so spacious- there was everything we needed for the barbecue outside. The house was very equipped with crockery and kitchen items, the pool area is brilliant a little chilly when we were there but we still used it!! We loved this villa and have booked again for 2017 it was perfect for us .

Made good use of the two sets of clubs available in the apartment. Really nice bar and restaurant on site and definitely worth a visit. Great food ,service and value. Looking forward to our next visit later in year.
