Great villa located in an ideal location. The villa was extremely clean, well maintained and tastefully furnished. It was smaller than we expected, as was the pool, but it suited our needs. If you want peace and quiet for your holiday/vacation then this villa is ideal. I would definitely recommend it to friends.

Owner's Response: Very fair review. The villa is around 2,000 sq ft which is average size for a 3 bedroom villa on Rotonda. What is unusual is that it is built in the middle of a double size plot of land so has trees either side rather than another villa either side. We think it makes this property more private and more attractive to renters.
