Under new ownership from when we went last year, apparently at the end of September it will be completely refurbished (which might explain the price hike when you look at next year's prices, so seems pointless to do a lengthy review) Suffice to say it wasn't quite the same as last year, the couple who ran it, and tbh made...

This is we understand the last year for the current owners at Esperides Villas. Well it's probably as well because they have milked it for as much as they can!
