We stayed in "apartment green" and didn't realise that the pool on the photos was actually our pool - not to be shared with the other 4 apartments in the villa - which we were told as soon as we arrived. What we didn't realise was that we couldn't share either the pool, surrounding area or terrace with ANYBODY which led to a bit of an argument with the resident caretaker when we invited friends, who were staying at the nearby camping site, for a drink and a quick plunge. This put a damper on what was otherwise a great week.
What we couldn't really understand was why the smallest apartment had the largest outside area - beautiful terrace and pool area with enough sunbeds and seating for at least six people. The apartment had an extremely well equiped kitchen as far as electrical devises went eg meat slicer, warming trays, huge built-in espresso machine and filter coffee maker although strangly no freezer compartment in the fridge. But if you both wanted a water or beer glass you were out of luck and, considering the huge outdoor area there were no plastic glasses to be had. There were enough plates for two (two side and two dinner plates along with a couple of serving plates) which meant that there wasn't even enough crockery to fill the dishwasher! This is definately not a self-catering apartment in the real sense of the word unless you want to spend all your time washing up!
The bedroom and bathroom were very nice and it was obvious that much had been done to create a luxurious atmosphere. We were lucky that we had excellent weather because had it rained, we would have had to spend the day sitting on the bed - there being no living quarters to speak of and certainly no sofa! By the way, the bedroom boasts a large, flat screen TV on the wall!
Having said all that, if you just want a holiday on your own, sitting by a lovely pool (albeit one which constantly throws off its tiles), walking into the nearby village in the evening to eat and generally having quality downtime this is the place to go (at least this apartment because it has the pool). However, remember, don't bring anyone back with you, not even for them to admire the pool, they'll get unceremoniously thrown out by the all-seeing caretaker!
