After a few issues with the air con and fridge freezer which were sorted out, we enjoyed our 2 week stay at the villa. It is like home from home and has everything you need. We hired a car through recommendation of the owner ,although the town if Polis is only 5 mins away.

The Restaurants provide the best food ever- try Mousakkalis!!!

We would definTely go back again.
