Absolutely perfect for our requirements. Only minor glitch was lots of local dogs barking non stop, but quickly got used to it. Very well appointed, excellent aircon and showers. Will book again.

As an extended family we could not fault this wonderful villa. It has absolutely everything you could desire and suited the needs of all, from young to old. Situated most conveniently for trips to the beach and pretty little towns just a short drive away. The swimming pool, shaded lounging areas and beautiful terraces were an added bonus considering the hot climate. Would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Mimosa to anyone.
