After a blissful five indulgent weeks of staying at this beautiful villa we were very sad to leave! It has been a real 'home from home' for us with everything we could want and we were... more
10 Jun 2011
The villa is really well furnished and decorated, great open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area. Plenty of towels were supplied which is great help for a family who are flying (not much luggage room) The pool was great especially as the heating made sure the kids went in whatever the weather! Jeane who met us there was lovely and very helpful. Lovely welcome pack and lots of left overs such as spices and oil etc were ready for us.
Beautiful area, beautiful villa, had a great time.
