Fantastic every time!

The Alexanders (Mum, Dad, two boys - 9 and 7) have just spent a wonderful fortnight at Telescopio. We had already stayed for a week last year with two guests, and promised ourselves we'd go again for longer, just the four of us, and it felt like home the moment we arrived!
Last time we hired a car and explored the island a bit, this time we spent our time at the villa mostly, as the pool area is so peaceful, sunny, sheltered and just gorgeous. The boys love the pool, we love the peace and the relaxation. We used the barbecue, played darts, played Jenga, listening to our own music (the new MP3 sound system is fab and we had our ipods with us - great!!) and some of the CDs there too. The boys watched DVDs or lazed on the day bed in the shade on the really hot afternoons, before we all headed off to one of the many restaurants down by the sea. We walked down every night, and got a taxi back - only 2 or 3 Euros. The location is great - not too close to anything to be noisy and not too far away to walk into town. Also the volcano is right there to be climbed. Spell out your names in stones in the crater and see if you can find ours....!
We love the villa and the feeling that the owners look after it - my personal benchmarks being decent beds, bedding and towels and more than enough room for 6 people to sit, eat, sleep, relax and holiday together. We also like all the personal touches, far, far too numerous to mention.
We'll be back, I'm sure!
