Has the property matched your expectations?
The villa is beautiful with spectacular views and was a perfect for our family of 8. We highly recommend this villa which caters for all needs with lovely interior and outdoor areas. The photos exactly match the actual villa. There are so many areas to relax, everyone can have privacy if required. The kitchen has everything you need but it small for the size of the property.
