Tal Hamsa is a magnificent spacious and flexible villa with breath taking views. Brilliant for large groups, it also works for more intimate parties when the main house alone is used without the two bedrooms on the lower pool level.

With its multi level structure, opening out on to dramatic bird's eye views, Tal Hamsa is suitable for teenagers, toddlers, and grannies. The two lower terrace bedrooms (sharing a shower room) can easily be shut off, making Tal Hamsa an extremely comfortable compact five bedroom villa with four bathrooms plus 'gents' and perfect for one family.

On the other hand, the large upstairs living room, and the many outside 'chill out' areas and of course the astra turf tennis court makes this an ideal house for several families. For aspiring chefs there is an exceptionally well equipped k...

What a fantastic place! Firstly, the location. If you like peaceful countryside with amazing sea views, far enough from everyone to be peaceful and near enough to town not to be isolated you'll like it here. Because the house is on the hillside there is often a lovely cooling breeze. It is very hilly - our car could (just) get...

A wonderful house with panoramic views, comfortable rooms, own swimming pool and access to tennis court. Convenient ( by car) for the Peligoni Club. The house was a key factor in us having a really great holiday. We will definitely return. William M

Management response:

A family party of 14 stayed in Tal Hamsa for 2 weeks and we all really enjoyed it. The villa is extremely well designed and thought out, with areas for sun and shade and plenty of room to accommodate times when people wanted to do different things, either in smaller groups or just some time alone. The view is terrific...
