A nice villa that is in need of a bit of TLC but the family loved it. Wasnt the quietest or most picturesque location but we had a brilliant time.
Pros: Great pool, nice and big inside and good kitchen and bathrooms finish. Ron the man on the ground was great and knew all the best places to eat and visit locally.
Cons: I attempted to contact owner several times with a few questions before we left but didnt get a reply, good old Ron saved the day. Its was a bit dirty and needed a good clean and some things were old and tired. The Satellite TV didnt seem to have any channels and i wasnt allowed to use the safe. The shower head handle in the master bedroom was broken but still worked if you were very strong.No outside light for front door, whacked my toe lol
