This villa is definitely home from home, it has everything you need to have an enjoyable stay. Tala village is lovely and the cliff top bar was our favourite for a refreshing drink, however due to hilly location we took the car as the square was further away than we thought. Mike and Joy our representives during our stay were extremely helpful and sorted any problems straight away. I'd like to thank Robyn the owner for an excellent stay, great communication and with out a doubt we would go back again.
