Liked best: The quality of service from the housekeeper and her cooking
Liked least: The management team returned my deposit with 2 old 50 pound notes, which had gone out of circulation, which required me to go to a UK bank to deposit.

A supurb and well equipt villa with a stunning lake view

We stayed for four nights at the Villa during October. The villa is difficult to find, but the staff do meet you on the main road to guide you in. The villa is very spacious with fourlovely en suite bedrooms, the kitchen is very will equipt with two huge fridges and a fantastic oven. You can bring your own food and the cook will prepare meals for you.The cook will go out to buy provisions during the day if you wish. A wonderful butler serves the food and manages the house in a very professional and unintrusive manner. He prepares the bedrooms at night, dropping the mosquito nets and ensuring coils are lit and doors closed. He even arranged for a mechanic to come quickly when we found our car had a flat battery!
The pool is an infinity and looks directly over the lake. There are huge covered balconies which you can take in the breathtaking view. Watch out for the bird life and the peacocks in the early morning.
A very secluded, relaxing and peacful place just 10 minutes from the beaches.
