Friendly welcome & the villas were very nice & well fitted out to a high standard. Lovely views towards the mountains and just a few minutes drive out of the bustling town itself, so nice & quiet. Comfy beds as well.

Thanks for these kind words. When you inquired about breakfast we mentioned that we packed everything (Bread,cereals,fruit,milk,eggs,spreads and fruit juice) into a basket and delivered it to your villa that night. We find that some people are over eating out at restaurants all the time...More
