There was plenty of room in the villa for our family and the pool was great. The views from the villa are absolutely stunning and the smell of orange blossom in the morning made a great start to every day. You will need a hire car if staying here, if you want to explore and take a trip to the beach etc. We spent some days just lazing by the pool and reading which was lovely. The kitchen was small but had everything we needed for the cooking we did. The built in BBQ outside was amazing and there was plenty of firewood for the BBQ and also the indoor fire which was needed for a few of the cooler evenings. Maureen was on hand when needed but left us to enjoy our holiday otherwise. She kept her dogs away and only brought them to meet us when we requested. The dogs were beautifully behaved and our daughters absolutely loved spending time with them. Maureen is a lovely lady with plenty of fascinating stories from her life. All in all we had a fantastic fortnight and would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat.
