The pizza night was a great experience! The pool was gorgeous Infact. I would recommend the place to everyone!!! Thank you so much Elizabeth and Doug
We have just returned from a wonderful week at the Villa, it is fitted out to a very high standard and has everything you could need. It is in a fabulous location making a great base from which to see the area. Doug and Elizabeth made us feel really welcome and were full of information that meant we were able to get the most of of our stay.
The pool area and gardens were stunning and everyone really enjoyed the pizza making allowing us to try some innovative toppings (nutella and haribo). We would not hesitate to recommend this property and location.
