My Mother and I spent a wonderful few days at the villa back in June 2011. The location is superb. Complete privacy the most breathtaking views I have ever seen. Shelagh and her family made us feel so welcome, as if staying with friends in a home away from home. Our room was huge, with a private balcony and a bath the size of a swimming pool and the rest of the house was equally as impressive. As well as spending time with the family and drinking in the view, the highlight of our stay had to be the herbal compress treatments we had in the Spa. The staff were superb and I fell asleep on both occasions. Thank you for hosting us. Best Wishes, Kate Glover UK
