Guestbook comments from the owner
This villa is really convenient for staying of famillies with small children. We were happy to swim in pool with warm water. Even for our children water in the pol was not too cold in this early spring, when nights are still really cold. We have all necessary equipment for preparation food at home and it was easy to prepare dinner with using barbeque. The villa is surrounded by the nice villas with good neighbourhood.
