"A lovely villa in a great location"
Myself, hubby and grown up daughter stayed at this villa the first week of October 2012. Its in a great, quiet location with some fantastic restaurants within 15 mins walk. You have 3 beaches with 20 mins walk, which are clean and interesting little coves. About 30 mins walk away is Gale beach, which is a normal long beach with plenty of facilities, but the smaller coves are much more fun. There is a restaurant/bar with toilets on each of the beaches and the toilets were clean so nice to use.
The villa itself is spacious and the grounds are large so plenty of room to lounge around. The views from the villa are great. My only criticism is that the sofa's in the lounge were not very comfortable but that's no big deal. Also I would like to have seen better quality table and chairs outside as they were plastic. (which is one of my pet hates).
The stairs were a bit scarey at first as they were circular, but once you got use to this it was no problem. There is a stairgate at the bottom of the stairs to stop young children ascending, which is a great idea if you have small ones. Also there is a bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor which would be good if anyone has difficulty climing stairs.
When we arrived the cleaners were still there, we were early, not them late. They were very friendly and the villa was immaculately cleaned. All in all I would definitely recommend this villa and would definitely go back.
We booked through Solmar Villas and they were extremely helpful and the directions etc were very good too.
