Villa Malu

  • 5 of 5

4 adults and 2 children have just returned from a weeks stay at this villa. It was a fantastic villa, so much space for the 6 of us and balconies just about everywhere. Lovely sized bedrooms each with their own bathroom. Plenty of space around the villa, tables and chairs in abundance and 10 sunbeds. The kids had a whale of a time in the pool and spent most of their days in there and once the sun had heated it, most of the adults spent time in there as well. Very clean and well looked after, pool was cleaned once during the week and theres a washing machine to wash your towels, sheets etc and with the 35 degrees heat we had they dry in a couple of hours. Susana who is the main contact is very helpful and nothing is too much trouble. We actually left a few bits in the villa and she had them posted to us. I would definitely recommend this villa and would love to go back next year. We hired a villa opposite Villa Malu from Susana two years ago and this was also spectacular. The views are amazing and 15 min walk to town or marina, but I would advise a taxi back as its all uphill (about 5 euros). Susana will also arrange collection and drop off to the airport so all in all a fab time.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? 10 of us have just returned from a week in this Villa. I can tell you it was very spacious for 10 people. It included a table tennis table which my 16 year old son spent most of his week on. It had all the facilities you need to make you feel at home. The views were spectacular. The walk to the old town was about 15 minutes on a slight downhill. Walking up can be more tiring. But there are abundance of taxis which cost approx 4 to 5 euros. There is a bar and supermarket closer within 5 to 10 minute walk. There is a beautiful walk to the marina. We went to a hypermarket one day which is approx. 10 euros in a taxi. It has all the shops from back home and a place where you could spend the day shopping. Most of our time was spent in the Villa. It was too good to leave. We had no cleaning service, but had a washing machine to refresh our towels during the week. There is a strong wifi but is not great around the pool area. I really cant say anything though negative about this place. We would all go back tomorrow. Was amazing!!!
