The villa was easy and straightforward to book and the owner was quick to respond to any questions.
On arrival we were met by the concierge Teri, who showed us around and showed us how everything worked. There were all the usual kitchen basics, as well as plenty of kitchen and toilet rolls, shower gel, etc. The beds are big and comfortable and there are plenty of towels and spare sheets.
But the main reason we booked this villa was the outdoor space. The garden is large with plenty of areas to sunbath. The pool has steps at either end with the deepest part being in the middle at about 5 foot. The spa is large with a good heater. The garden is north facing but we still had the sun all day long when we went in May/June, with a good view of the mountains. There is also a shaded patio for when things get too hot.
We also had use of the garage (with remote opener) which is good to get the car out of the heat of the day.
We stayed in the villa for nearly a month and really...

A great experience - from being met by a really helpful concierge who showed us how everything worked, to comfortable beds, big rooms, all mod-cons and furniture. Really good out-door space with large covered terrace and plenty of space in the garden to venture out to sunbath. The pool and spa were good, with a pool heater that worked effectively and easily. The hedges are high enough and thick enough to ensure complete privacy from the neighbours (none of whom where noisy when we were there). New bedlinen and towels (including pool towels) were supplied and there was also a large supply of crockery and glassware, including a set for using by the pool. Everything was very clean (indoor and out). Basic kitchen condiments provided and plenty of toilet rolls, so no need to buy before you arrive! The wi-fi was fast - we had 12mbs whilst we were there, and the cable had lots of channels. Booking with the owner was easy, straightforward and they were prompt about refunding the... more
