This is a lovely villa, with a fantastic pool, grounds and even a few friendly tortoises (which our children loved). The kitchen is much better than any villa we've stayed in previously and is well kitted out. There is a nice indoor (which I've never seen before) and outdoor barbecue. Beautiful amenities are a very short drive away as are supermarkets, shops, bars and restaraunts. The agent is very friendly and very helpful and knows the area well. At the villa, there is a lot of space for cars and the grounds are very secure.
We had a lovely holiday at Villa Petra. We loved the pool, the beautiful villa and the surrounding area. The villa and pool were immaculate, with every home comfort - we would definitely recommend.
