When booking the apartment we needed to pay an advance payment of 50% of the price of the apartment for 2 weeks. We were obliged to cancel vacation 6 months! ahead of the booking date. Despite many requests to obtain at least a part of this considerable amount back, the owner did not react at all. Everybody who plans to book please be warned, the owner will steal the money. Don't pay advance payment. In case of emergency you need to withdraw you will never get it back.
The outdoor space at this property is every bit as nice as the pictures suggest and the pool was lovely and warm. The decor indoors in particular is "shabby chic" done well and with high quality materials. We didn't find the indoor lounge area particularly comfortable but then we spent most of our time outside anyway. With solid walls and air conditioning it was nice and cool inside, when you do need to escape the outside heat (it was hot when we were there). We stayed here with a 3 year old and the property well suited to small children. There is a baby gate on the stairs and a child proof lock on the pool. Our only real concern was the ladder to the top bunk, which can't be removed.
The villa itself is down a gravel track where the owner is the only other person living nearby although the garden to this property is private from his house and grounds. There are main roads nearby which make this an ideal base for exploring the area but you do need a car.
The owner was very helpful. We had a power cut while we were there and he arranged for someone to come round quite quickly to take a look as he wasn't around. It turned out the problem was the whole area and not just us but it was nice that he was so responsive.
We would definitely stay here again.
