"Great Holiday and friendly owners!"
We stayed (Wife and two childredn (12 and 8) and was met by Sophia coming to find us after going the wrong way. The villa is great although does need AC in the loft bedroom and is kept in a good clean state. Sophia and her family were great, to the extent she provided a birthday cake for my daughter (no charge) invited us to a BBQ and allowed us to use the villa until late due to our late departure.
I would suggest some more informaiton for the surrounding area may be helpful. We found the best beaches were a 1/2 hour drive at Bali as the sea was nice and calm.
Overall we had a great holiday with the personnel touch that you would not give otherwise/

The villa and location were just perfect for us and our 3 year old. I spent many hours by the pool and on the roof terrace just soaking up the beautiful view over the forest down to the mediterannean. The villa is a short distance from a town with a couple of supermarkets, small bars/tavernas and things to cater for daily needs, but just a 10 min drive from the centre of the lively and picturesque main town with its many bars, restaurants and shops, plus huge beach. The balance between staying somewhere so peaceful and beautiful with no noise other than local wildlife, but having such easy access to everything is ideal for a family holiday in my view. The villa sleeps more people than us, and space would certainly not be a problem for 2 or even 3 couples, or a bigger family than mine.
The villa is about 10 years old, and the quality of the construction and attention to detail is excellent and very evident throughout. Spacious and comfortably furnished (great beds!), good sized swimming pool and terrace, plus a large roof terrace, and plenty of mod cons. Spotlessly clean when we arrived, and cleaned twice when we were there too. Then there are the owners who were so friendly and helpful to us - we were given a large moussaka on arrival to save us having to cook, plus olive oil and honey (both delicious) made by the family. We were also lucky enough to be invited round one afternoon for a big meal with the owners' family and friends and could not have been made to feel more welcome. Other good aspects were very quick replies to my queries and questions before booking, no charge for cleaning (should ALWAYS be included if you ask me).
I always prefer a villa to a hotel and have stayed in many, and this villa exceeded my expectations in nearly every way. We plan to return to the same place (something we have never done before) in the future and I would not hesitate to recommend it.
