Peace and tranquility

5 of 5
We arrived quite late to the villa and where met by the caretaker Sally who showed us around. We asked if there was anywhere we could get some water as we hadn't passed any shops on the way, she kindly went to her house in the village and came back with a pack of 6 bottles. Thanks Sally. This villa has everything you need to have a great stay, The outside is huge with a few different seating areas, pool and garden which is awash with wildlife. My favourite thing was the pool it's big enough to swim some lengths and also very warm on one day it got up to 31dg. It was a chore some days to drag ourselves away from it to tour the areas. We found some great beaches in the area our favourite being Vera it was huge. I would highly recommend this villa especially for family's with children, our grandkids locked it. grandkids

Fantastic Villa in a nice quiet location

5 of 5
The villa was great, with new interior and facilities. Although we had some issues with the pool, Steve the owner was quick to react and resolve within a short space of time. The local area is quiet in the immediate surrounds but there are plenty of small coastal towns worth visiting.
