“A great place for a relaxing holiday”
Reviewed September 8, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The family, a party of 9 ranging in age from 15 to 70, arrived at 1:30 a.m to be met by Luis, who, despite the hour, was bright, cheerful and very helpful. He showed us the villa, told us what we needed to know, handed us the keys, wished us a good holiday, and left, with no extended handover procedures.
The villa itself was large, airy and well set out. The five bedrooms all featured comfortable beds, wardrobes, cupboards and fans. The windows all had mesh-covered louvred shutters, so could be left open without admitting flying insects! One bedroom was ensuite, and all the bathrooms were clean, tidy and well provided with towels.
The kitchen was equipped with all the regular items; toaster, coffee maker, hob and oven, microwave etc., and enough cutlery and crockery for a small army. There were two fridge/freezers which were well used throughout the week!.The external door in the kitchen led out to a BBQ area and stairs to the roof, which was well used by the younger members of the party for sunbathing and for relaxing during the evening.
The lounge was superb, featuring comfortable seating for the whole party, TV and large dining table. Access to the patio and pool was via a sliding area of the glass wall which overlooked the pool, garden and sea. What a view that was!
The pool has a small shallow area with steps, leading via a steep slope to a 9x5m, 6ft deep area, which was great for us as we were all swimmers, but as there was no fence, would be a concern for those with young children. The garden was well cared for, and ended at a public footpath and picket fence overlooking the cliffs and beach. The footpath led via steps to the beach, and, although a bit of a challenge for two of the party, was usable by all. The traffic along the footpath was not excessive, and caused few problems, although when only one member of the party was in the house, two teenagers decided to use the pool without asking. However when the remaining person came out and asked what they thought they were doing, they simply shouted an apology and ran off. During the week, the pool circulation pumps failed, and a call to the agent resulted in a visit by the pool maintenance man within 30 minutes, and the problem was soon fixed.
Overall, the villa was a great base for a relaxing holiday, and I would have no problem in recommending it, although I would have to caution those with young children that there are risks involved with the pool and easy access to the cliff, which is at least 20 metre high!
