Donna Hodgkinson, 29-Aug-2013

Villa was clean and well presented in the photographs. The location was perfect for our family with the peaceful surroundings but the liveliness just a short taxi ride away. Service from the minibus and local taxi company was excellent. Would certainly recommend the villa for large families.
