The villa is very unique with excellent hosts.The pool was a hit. The location is very private with the local village near by and can be reached on foot if you are fit!! Views excellent. The only problem was the heat, exceptional! The villa would definitely benefit from air conditioning particularly in the downstairs bedrooms as the windows cannot be opened.
We all had a very memorable stay.
