Limited availability ( See Rates Notes )

Luxury villa set in idyllic location set in rolling countryside, yet has the convenience of 2 restaurants, and a cafe/bar within 300m walking distance

. Large airy villa with high ceilings large rooms all with air-conditioning. All facilities to hand, and 10x5m private pool.

Spacious sun terraces with sunbeds and umbrella. Roomy terrace for alfresco dining overlooking the pool.

Notes on accommodation:

Air-conditioning in every room (available July/August) but is not very often necessary as the design feature of the villa with high ceilings means that the villa remains temperate year-round. If required book in advance, cost is £85 per week. If occasionally it is cooler in the winter, there is fitted underfloor heating available at extra cost.

Please note that all Winter prices are plus gas and electric and water. Children are most welcome but must be supervised at all times, particularly near the steps and swimming pool as it is 2 metres deep at one end.


The villa is set in 2/3 acre of exotic tropical gardens and fruit orchard. There are two lawned areas, on which to relax plus large sun terracing on which to relax, and shade area which includes glass table and six chairs for that al fresco dining experience. A barbecue is available for your convenience.

There is a 10 x 5 m solar cover heated pool and an outside shower which we would ask you use before entering and leaving the pool area. Please do not move this cover as it is important that it is put on the pool to preserve it and also to prevent anything blowing in the pool, also it keeps the water warmer !

We are able to supply cots and high chairs for your convenience.

Mid term linen & towel change for stays over one week.

There is a final cleaning bill of £75 included in the rates

A beautiful, spacious, well maintained villa

  • 5 of 5

We received a very warm welcome from the lady who manages the property, she couldn't have been more helpful. The villa is spacious and luxurious and well equipped with all needed for a very enjoyable holiday. The outside area is well designed and attractive with generous seating areas and the pool is delightful and was thoroughly enjoyed on a daily basis by all of our party. There is a lovely restaurant a short stroll from the villa (Amadeus) where we were made very welcome and were served delicious food. The owner, Bob, has been great at communicating with us and provided very good service. If it wasn't already booked we would definitely visit Villa Mimosa again.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Mimosa gets 5 out of 5 for us as it has everything you need and more both inside and out. Lots of space and the main bedroom en-suite is amazing, best shower ever!

Very well stocked kitchen, with all the pots,pans crockery etc you could need and all in excellent condition. Bedroom very comfortable and the whole villa was extremely clean and well maintained.

All our time was spent outside, enjoying the pool area with a lovely spacious terrace and beautifully kept gardens.

You will not be disappointed staying here, we loved it and would definitely recommend it.
