    We stayed in the villa with a garden view and it was so nice to have our own little area. We loved that breakfast was available, you can say that the hosts are very thoughtful about the needs of their guests. They had fresh juice, milk, eggs, bread, yogurt, fruits, beans and jams for us. There's a dryer as well as ironing board available too which was very useful. The towels and bath robes are of great quality and the room looks and smells great.

    Very helpful and friendly hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Staying on the property is perfect in all seasons- fire place when it’s cold or outdoor swimming pool when it’s hot. We stayed with kids and they loved it, too.
