WOW! What a holiday

  • 5 of 5

We booked really easily with Richard for 4 adults and 6 children and everything he described was exactly as he said it was. We were greeted by a very friendly gentleman called Steve who showed us around the house and couldn't do enough for us. The villa is well kept, suffifiently out the way so we didn't feel encroached on by anyone, with a lovely pool and two different areas outside for dining so most evenings we lit up the BBQ! The beaches are about a 15min drive away with the best we found at Pulpi about 30 mins away but well worth the drive. I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone. Thanks Richard and Steve for a great holiday!!!
