“Outstanding villa”

We had a two-week, three generation stay at Villa Gemma. We had a wonderful time and the villa met every expectation we had. The villa was very spacious and accommodated six adults and two young children with ease. With each bedroom having its own bathroom it was really convenient. The villa was equipped to a very high standard and a new kitchen had just been installed. The pool area and gardens were beautiful and the maintenance standards were again very high. The heated pool was serviced twice a week and housekeeping came in also twice a week. the children loved the pool and also the playroom. The barbecue area was a really nice to eat in. We had two very minor problems and Paul the house manage came round within about 15 minutes so great service from Paul. We just loved the villa and the whole area so we are now planing to go back again next year! Wi-fi was very fast and the security deposit was repaid within a few days.

“Feel like a "star" for a week”

Villa Gemma proved perfect for my family group of 8 adults and 4 children (0-5). The villa was a perfect holiday home with lots of room for everyone and the heated pool was the centre piece of the holiday. The shutters in each bedroom fooled the kids so they stayed in bed until 6am.
The location is excellent with easy access to several superb coves and beaches and not too far from a selection of supermarkets.
The only negative was that the property is close to new terrace developments. These were empty at the time. Star rating for the barbecue area for evening dining, all the family rated the villa 9.7/10.

“Fabulous villa in fab location! Loved it!”
Reviewed 5 November 2014 for a stay in August 2012

Fantastic villa with amazing accommodation. Slept 5 adults and 5 children no problem.
Really nicely kitted out and the pool is fantastic too.
The local town is a 5 minute drive away and has everything you need.
Loved it and would love to go back again :-)
