My husband, myself and our 3 children (aged 15, 13 and 11) have just returned from a fantastic fortnight in this beautiful villa. We would recommend a car if you are staying here as the nearest village/beach is probably about 10 minutes away and the property is situated at the top of a steep hill. The views from the villa are spectacular and the facilities are excellent. Large swimming pool, lovely barbecue area, modern well equipped kitchen, living/dining area, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms - well stocked with towels and linent. We would certainly recommend this property and would love to re visit ourselves in the future.
