From the Owner

Location is most important. In selecting Villa Sofia consideration was given to the size of the property – I did not want a little box but a substantial dwelling that I could one day be retire to. At 1184 Sq ft Villa Sofia meets this requirement. The second consideration was distance from Playa Blanca village. At just on 1 mile Villa Sofia is close enough but not too close. This leads onto the 3rd reason Traffic and noise. Being in a residential area there is no pub noise or through traffic. I find Villa Sofia an ideal get-a-away, a place to relax and forget about my day-to-day work issues.

From the Owner

Close to but far enough away from Playa Blanca Village. Villa Sofia is just on 1 mile from the restaurants and bars. I find Villa Sofia an ideal get-a-away, a place to relax and forget about my day-to-day work issues. The pool and BBQ area are private and can't be seen from the raod.
