60kms from the airport means three hours in a car due to the heavy traffic on the roads. However it's so worth it, to reach this idyllic slice of heaven. The villa is private and isolated, with staff that are discreet, quiet and helpful. The villa has everything one might need - breakfasts are delicious and lunches and dinners can be arranged (the villa has cooks rather than chefs so the variety is limited, but delicious), massages can be arranged. We hired the villa's scooters and explored the back roads and villages which were quaint, and friendly. Balian beach - with a suprising number of reasonable eateries - is 3kms away - can be walked to but also there are drivers on the premises that can take you down if you don't fancy your scooter skills on the main road. We took good friends and board games ... 7 nights made for a superb de-stress experience. The best part of all? Whiling away quiet, warm days by the pool with a good book & good company.
