“Can I go back now!”

Firstly, the photos do not do it justice... That moment when we first walked up the stairs was "Wow, this is so much nicer than we expected" and our expectations were high! We were greeted by the lovely Alex and Sue, the most lovely welcome! We had a 7 year old with us and Sue had her attention at 'hello' when she got to choose a lilo to use (which was all she wanted to know once she saw the pool!)

Alex and Sue immediately made us feel comfortable, they gave us all the detail we needed without overloading us having just arrived. Their flexible and accommodating nature was enough for us to know from the start we were going to have an amazing time.

The villa is lovely, the garden is beautiful and very well kept, the pool was always cleaned and was free from any dangers for our child in the group. The villa is more covered from the neighbours than it looks in the photos as the plants and shrubs have grown so we didnt feel overlooked by neighbours.

You do need a car though, we only had a car for 1 week of 2 but Alex offered to drop us off for lunch when we didnt have a car and he gave us a number of an English speaking taxi who picked us up from all over the island at all sorts of times who was just lovely to us. Thanks George!

All in all, we couldn't wish for a better place to have spent our holiday. We went horse riding, went on road trips, went on trips to other islands, had lovely dinners and were spoilt by the hospitality of Alex and Sue.

Couldn't recommend more if you want a break away from the buzz whilst having access to nice restaurants, excursions and bars without bumping into the drunken 18 - 30's parade!

The only negatives I can think of are; you need a car or be willing to pay for taxi's daily, the furniture inside the house is fine but a little dated - the beds were typically hard and the single beds were small, oh and I think they should purchase a salad bowl - we used your saucepan to serve salad (now I'm really picking :) )
