Top quality Villa, inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a sixteen night stay in this wonderful Villa. It was really comfortable and extremely well equipped. The pool is great and was thoroughly enjoyed by us all. I would very happily recommend this property to my friends without any qualms. Trevor was a superb host who could not have done more to make our stay more comfortable. He kindly showed us around another property he has in the Old Town. It's absolutely fantastic and has made us decide to have a duel destination break with them next year. Rachel and Trevor have been great throughout the booking process. They booked multiple transfers for us and our guests. Altogether a most comfortable and relaxing break was had by all. We will definitely be returning.

We were a party of 5 adults and two small children, 20 months and 4 months

If you are looking for a villa for a family or a couples holiday this is perfect.

Set in a quiet estate within about 20 minutes walking distance to a 5 star beach, on site shop (lovely bakery), walking distance to some lovely restaurants and a 2 minute taxi ride to the new town €3.50 or 5 minutes, €5.50 to the old town (use the taxi number ken gives you he is lovely and know all the good places to eat)

The villa is beautiful and the pictures do not do it justice, it is large and everything is immaculate, and well looked after. The pool area again is immaculate, beautifully maintained and very child friendly, is not over looked and has 8 sun loungers, inflatables and bat and ball games. You also have sun in the garden from morning until night.

When we were booking we were asked what we would need and Rachel and Trevor made sure everything was there on arrival including high chairs, buggys, monitors, travel cots and should we have any problems ken and his wife (they looks after the villas) were on hand for anything we needed. We even arrived to a fridge of basics including beet and wine!!

An extremely enjoyable week away with my family, highly recommended!!

P.s let Rachel book the transfers they were cheaper than other companies, were very punctual
