“Lovely location, peaceful.”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

My Mum and I stayed a week at Sofia. The villa is in a very quiet area, but still very close to the main road which makes it easy to get around and explore. The view from the rooftop is great and there is a beautiful beach not far away. The villa has everything and more in the kitchen and bedrooms are actually bigger than they are in pictures and also a great lounge area. Owners very easy to deal with and answered questions promptly. Supermarkets close and have a great selection and plenty of restaurants in area also. As we were 2 women traveling alone we felt safe at all times both at the villa and traveling around. We would not hesitate in staying at Sofia again. Thank you Slater and Jayne for sharing your villa with us.

Thank you glad you all enjoyed your stay at Sofia, we would love to have you back, as for the shower curtain I agree ,it was only put in to protect the wash basin cupboard as it’s a wet room design ,and you are correct not a problem in the hotter weather

Thank you Glad you enjoyed your stay, although mosquitos are not a great problem at the Villa
We found it preferable to sleep with the bedroom doors open on very hot nights; I’m a light sleeper and find the hum of an air-con unit even on night setting disturbing.
