“Ideal place to relax and play.”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

When we told the barman in Waves that we were staying in Villa Brio he congratulated us for choosing to stay in accommodation with one of the best views of Skala, and boy was he right. You could spend your whole time moving from balcony to balcony, then to the bottom of the garden taking in the view over the sea and along the beach towards town, watching the ships and yachts.

However Villa Brio is more than this, we stayed in Brio One, 4 adults and 4 children, and had a great 2 weeks. The villa itself is well equipped and roomy, just as you'd expect, and Anita was most helpful when we had any queries and requests. Access to the clear blue cove via a small jetty was a great and meant we could alternate swimming in the pool with snorkelling in the sea. And having a teenager with demanding digital requirements, the internet access was great and good enough to stream music.

The freezer froze water and the kettle boiled it. Dishwasher took a little getting used to - don't open mid-cycle. The hob was used for omelettes, but we didn't utilise the barbecue as we had no charcoal.

Of Villas One, Two and Three we felt ours had the most private pool area, with a tree in the garden providing privacy, plus later in the afternoon it was kept cool in the shade from the raised garden area above it.

We have no criticism or complaints, however be aware that the layout means access to the garden and pool are through one of the lower floor bedrooms. Outside eating around a large table was good, however it's in full sun at lunchtime so had to retire inside to eat. The walk into Skala is a good 30 minutes in summer heat, however there are numerous watering holes en route and a taxi back's a reasonable €5.

Would we recommend - you bet.
