We stayed in a wonderful suite at villa Paradisa for 2 nights. Marilyn and Martin plus the team are professional, relaxed and very welcoming. Martin cooks up a wonderful breakfast and Marilyn has all the tips, ideas and openings at booked out restaurants! Very highly recommended.

We were pleased to reach Villa Paradisa after a long drive; we were very pleased with the quality of the service and accomodation. The room was large and great views. Marilyn and Martin, plus all the staff were very friendly and knew the local area so well--they are happy to help with bookings. We would be happy to return.

Arriving at Villa Paradisa you are warmly welcomed and shown your room. Everything is so comfortable and you are well looked after. Martin cooks a different and interesting breakfast each morning. If there is anything you need that isn't provided you just ask and it is there. Thank you Marilyn and Martin for looking after us so well!

The Villa's private location provides absolute tranquilty. The breakfasts were both delicious...
