This little villa is very special. With only 8 units it is very close and personal without being in others business.

The only regret we had is not staying longer. 4 stars accomodation at a very reasonable price. Direct access by a steep stair to a separate restaurant which is very good and has an exceptional view. Highly highly recommended!
