Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a great holiday in your lovely villa. We enjoyed many evenings sitting on the terrace taking in the view. It was exactly what we were looking for. We very much enjoyed the fish restaurant beside your villa. We had lunch there most days. We hope to return soon.
