Lovely place, well kitted out, good directions. If anything the photos don't do it justice as we found it larger than expected and four adults fitted in comfortably. Great 2 hour mountain drive to south of island just by turning rigth out of the car park and just about going straight!
The only drawback was the shower. The curtain is ineffectual and with four people showering, occasionally twice a day the floor was always wet but this was a minor problem that would probably solve itself at hotter times of the year.
Thank you glad you all enjoyed your stay at Sofia, we would love to have you back, as for the shower curtain I agree ,it was only put in to protect the wash basin cupboard as it's a wet room design ,and you are correct not a problem in the hotter weather

We had a wonderful time. Super communication by the owners. We will go back again and again. The apartment is brand new and luxurious but value for money.
Thank you Hope to see you again

A lovely well equipt villa, facilities excellent, fly screens were a nice touch. We enjoyed a peaceful relaxing holiday. Roof top terrace an added bonus. No extra charges, i.e. for air con. Will be back
Thank you Glad you enjoyed your stay, although mosquitos are not a great problem at the Villa
We found it preferable to sleep with the bedroom doors open on very hot nights; I'm a light sleeper and find the hum of an air-con unit even on night setting disturbing.
