Sarah and Lita’s place far exceeded my expectations. It is a beautiful setting and the facilities were amazing. I’d highly recommend this for any family gatherings or holidays. We would most definitely return.

We had a brilliant week stay at the villa. It was a family holiday with our ten month old son, my sister and brother in law and my dad and partner - so all ages covered. The house is beautiful. Every room is lovely, the main house a more traditional style, and then the studio roo…

Thank you Rebecca for taking the time to give us such an incredible review, we appreciate it because we always want fabulous guest like you with wonderful energy and cleanliness!! It was noted you were the cleanest guest at the villa so far and we appreciate it as it shows you have taken good care of our home. My only sadness is that you should have mentioned Finns bed sooner as its never any problem to upgrade and the housekeeping never picked up on this when setting up. Needless to say we appreciate your feedback and immediately bought a much more sophisticated baby bed for Finn's next visit. Have an awesome end of the year and keep safe and healthy until we see you all again, Sarah & Lita xx

By far the best Airbnb experience we've ever had! We loved the huge villa which has more than enough space for 10 people - five big bedrooms, all with their own bathrooms, and sparklingly clean. We ordered the welcome pack which was wonderful as it meant we could have lunch when …
