Perfect in every way...

5 of 5
We were greeted by the owners Roberto & Marissa who were extremely pleasant & helpfull. Having had my parents living in Oliva for 14 years & holidaying there for 20 years we know the area very well. The villa did not disappoint, fully equipped as stated. I was extremely happy with the choice of beach chairs & umbrellas, even buckets & spades if you have children. The beautiful white sandy beach is less than a minutes walk away. Supermarket, bars & restaurants 2 minutes walk. We had a fabulous fortnight & will be back.

5 of 5
This was my second stay at this fabulous villa and was everything I remember and more. Beautifully maintained villa, pool area and gardens. Sarah and Mick couldn't have been more helpful. Lazy days round the pool and evenings enjoying good food on the balcony dining areas watching beautiful sunsets. Would recommend this villa to family and friends.
