Customer Reviews

We have just returned from a weeks bliss with our 4 year old daughter. Everything was perfect!! The Villa is stunning and had everything we could have possibly needed and a whole lot more. Everything seemed new and it was totally spotless. Peter and Linda the owners were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and they spend so much time looking after the villa and "beautiful" gardens. I could write an essay on how we got up in the morning, cooked a lovely breakfast in the fully stocked kitchen, spent the day around the pool while our daughter played happily for hours, spent our evenings playing pool and netball in the play area and finally sat outside with a glass of wine and took in the stunning view! The only downfall was ....... having to leave! Booked again for next year before we left to soften the blow! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!Anon.
