10/10 Exceptional

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.
