Well equipped villa. Fantastic for families with toddlers. Tastefully decorated.

Lovely villa. Equipped with all necessary equipment for holidaying with small children. Owners were extremely helpful and gave us some great restaurant suggestions. The children loved the slide, swing and see-saw. Pool was gorgeous and the housekeeping as excellent.

Fabulous family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful villa with our two children (6 and 8). The villa itself was fantastically well equipped, but thanks to the amazing weather we spent most of our time enjoying the pool and bbq area. We had such a fantastic holiday, were made to feel incredibly welcome, and would love to return soon.

Fantastic villa with great pool and garden

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday staying here. We particularly loved the pool and garden area, which was very pretty with so many flowers, and the children really liked the play area. The villa was very well equipped inside, with comfy beds. My 7 year old loved his attic bedroom!

The owners were very welcoming, we were met on arrival to show us the villa and answer any questions, and he came to say goodbye with a gift when we departed.

Beautiful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week at the villa Marina with our two children aged 14 and 11. The villa is beautifully decorated and extremely well equipt. The garden and pool area is perfect for a family or group of people and is set up brilliantly for eating am fresco.

A lovely villa!
