We booked late and were attracted by the 'WOW' reviews and the value for money a late booking provided. As a family of 4, we had acres of room and the villa could easily host 10 as advertised - 8 probably ideal. Very clean, particularly well equipped and maintained, good wifi (to keep up to date with the Ashes!), loads of space and very well situated with views - awesome! Plenty of sun and shade (it was 38+ and scorchio while we were there in July), air con very welcome in the evening. Just a short walk into town (which is very touristy) and there's plenty of local shops, markets and restaurants to go at but you can feel as though you are a world away if you want - very little noticeable noise and mature garden provides a little haven. You need to dig a bit to find authentic local shops and restaurants if that's what you're after, rather than those aimed at the Brit tourist. Plenty to do if you're willing to get out and about by boat or car. I'd certainly go again, particularly if there's a free week available late (which is unlikely, and for very good reason!). In all, worth 5* overall - but directions from airport could be better!
