This is a nice and spacious apartment with breathtaking views of the town, the port, the lake-wetland of Saint George and the airport. As the airport is relatively small and the flights are operated only during the day (and they start usually before 09.00) there is no issue with the noise. Very nice service from all staff and it is very clean. Just take into account that the villa is located on a hill and the walk up is quite steep, in case there are any mobility issues.

The views are breathtaking, especially watching the sunset by the pool! The villas are beautiful and comfortable in every aspect and the architectural and design elements of the house are fantastic! Lucia, the host, is so helpful and she can recommend the best beaches to go to and the best restaurants in the area! You definitely need a car here, so that you can explore the island in the best way. The roads to the villas can be a bit steep, so I would recommend a 4×4 though a regular car would be ok as well.
