"An amazing villa! Everything you could possibly need was provided. Everything in this villa was the height of luxury and provided welcome surprises such as the fruit trees in the garden. Walter & Isobel (the property managers) could not be faulted, they were extremely friendly, provided excellent recommendations for sightseeing and food, and were extremely efficient in keeping the property in tip top condition. Hopefully we'll be back soon."

"We all had a great holiday and enjoyed the villa, pool and indeed the countryside very much. We have been on quite a few villa holidays in the past, and we all agreed that this villa was the best we had stayed in. We will definitely be back."

July 2013

"The villa was beautiful – so well equipped, with everything new and in excellent order. What amazed us was the situation of the villa, on that perfect hillside, with more flowers and butterflies than I have ever seen. We loved the dark blue of the sea in one direction, and the dramatic outline of the White Mountains behind us. In the evenings, the shepherds would come to move the flock back up the hillside and we would hear their different bells as they came past."

June 2013

"Return visit. Even more amazing second time around. The villa has everything."
