“Absolutely FABULOUS!”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is without a doubt the best villa we have ever stayed in! The view is to die for and it has everything to make the perfect holiday for any age group. The area is magnificent too and it is surrounded by the most spectacular beaches. Restaurants, shops etc all nearby but Old Town is also close so you would want for nothing. This really is a special place for those who want the very best but in a peaceful area and with luxury for an excellent price. We have found no faults at all. Nothing but praise for the owners and their beautiful villa. Lucky us to be able to share in their good fortune! If you do not book this villa, you will miss out! We will be going back over and over again....

We loved the Place as soon as we parked inside the iron gates on traditional cobbles, the Villa has that 'loved' look. Inside was spacious and stylishly furnished, white marble floors, a living room with patio doors to kidney shaped pool and lovely garden and BBQ area. The sea view set us up for the holidays when we woke the first morning! The bedrooms were large and beautifully furnished to a very high standard, we spent more time than we planned in the villa ! The beach and small shop were short walks, we loved the restaurant on the beech. A nice place in the perfect location.
