Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is absolutely amazing, fantastic facilities, the pool area was a huge hit with our children which is surrounded by lovely gardens and a gazebo for when you want to get out of the sun. The BBQ area is great for family nights in out a quick lunch.

The owners live locally and were so friendly and on hand to answer questions.

Location-could not of asked for better, walking distance to local bars shops and amazing restaurants and only a 20min walk to the beach.

We had 6 adults and 2 children and never felt on top of each other we had an amazing week and can't wait to return.

Had a super week here and wished we'd stayed longer, will hopefully be booking for two weeks next year. Villa is lovely and well equipped, the garden is pretty and the pool is the best. Could live here all the time 😁

Very well equipped villa

  • 5 of 5

Aside from being beautiful and well located, the villa is extremely well equipped, as if staying in a friends home, which made travelling with 3 children under 5 very stress free. The owners live locally and were very helpful in providing some basic groceries before our arrival. the gardens are very well looked after, and the poolside gazebo a special treat!

Spent a lovely time here, with fabulous facilities, accommodating owners, where nothing was a problem. Very chilled and relaxed Villa yet within easy walking distance to restaurants and cafés if you so wished.

Pool facilities excellent for adults and children but the poolside gazebo was perfect to get away from the heat of the sun with a good book.

The Villa was perfect for entertaining with a great BBQ area that meant many nights were spent in admiring the views from the balcony.

It is like a home from home and is perfect for families. We will definitely be returning.

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

An unbelievable and luxury villa which was clean well equipped and had everything you could wish for along with excellent customer service from the owners.

The villa is in an ideal location with lovely bars and restaurants in walking distance, but also only a stones throw away to some of the larger resorts.

However I think you'll find once at the Villa you'll never want to leave, the pool,terrace and BBQ kept us and our son and his friend both 13 yrs happy and content for 2 weeks.

We will definitely be back. A truly lovely villa in a beautiful location.
