14 people, 3 generations age range from 67 to 9 altogether for 14 days and not one disagreement. A miracle. The villa was spacious and clean. The pool was cleaned at least 5 times during our stay (after each clean we had to stay out for an hour so a bit inconvenient). The beach and town centre, although only a 5 minute walk, was down a very steep slope, so maybe not recommended for anyone with mobility problems but the taxis and ubers were not expensive. I myself, the eldest of our group had to stop for a rest half way, but thought the calories burned allowed me to drink more wine. so worth it. the first week the weather was perfect, the second week got hotter and hotter so the pool was welcome. The housekeeper was lovely and friendly and at the end of the phone to answer any queries and was very helpful when my son was taken ill.

The property was exactly what we needed and exactly how it was described.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully situated within really close proximity to shops & restaurants. We got a taxi from the village to the nearest large supermarket on the first day to get all the main supplies and shopped locally after that. We opted not to have a car which was probably a wise decision because there would have been no parking on the street and the entrance to the driveway was blocked the entire week by a van!

We used the pool every day and bbq frequently. Such an amazing venue and property for a family of 13 with 5 children. We loved it.

Birthday Celebrations

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 generations of the family celebrating a significant birthday. The villa was perfect, well equipped and spacious, and so convenient for the beach, restaurants and shops. The driveway was a challenge as was the walk up the hill from the town but nothing we could not manage. The pool was well used by all the family. We visited Slide and Splash and Zoo marine during the week and some hired pedalos and kayaks at the beach.Isabella was on hand if we needed her. Would recommend the villa as a perfect extended family holiday.

Summer 2013

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely family holiday here. The villa was a very good size and we chose it on the basis that it was near the beach and all the facilities. Also we were expecting it to be noisy at night but that was not the case. The villa itself was nice and spacious. As the villa was split into two, it was perfect for the two families. But only the top floor had a dishwasher which didnt bother us too much as we ate out every night! Also we could have done with a few more wine glasses as they were very limited and a spare cork screw as we only had one !! Not that we like a drink lol! James the owner called in most days to check the pool and was very friendly and helpful, recommending good restaurants to go to. A perfect villa for families who like to be near the beach. Also no need for a car if you want to keep the costs down as we got good transfers from the airport and local supermarkets 5 minutes walk.
