Me and My Wife plus grandson aged (9) stayed at the villa. The villa is extremely well equiped and located in the premier part of the island. Our grandson loved the two pools and actually learnt to swim complete lengths here. The facility to sit out early for breakfast is what the Med is all about. An extremely friendly family run the villa. Local shops and restaurants close by. (We are returning May 2012).
The Caves of Drach or Dragon Caves, just outside the pretty harbour resort of Porto Cristo are among the island's most outstanding tourist attractions. These sensational cool, dark limestone caves are spread over 2,000 metres of spectacular formations of stalactites and stalagmites. As if this wasn’t enough, in the middle is a massive floodlit lake - one of the biggest underground lakes in the world. The hour long tours are highly organised and vast [more] numbers of visitors are 'processed' through the system every day during the summer in groups of several hundred people at a time. Multi-lingual guides give you the lowdown on the weird stalactite formations with names like the Fairies' Theatre and Diana's Bath, before you are treated to a 10 minute classical music recital by a string quartet. After a light show imitating the sunrise you have the option of crossing the lake by boat or on foot over a bridge. [less]

The master bedroom has a king-size bed, and the second bedroom gives the zip-and-link flexibility to choose either full-size twin beds or a super-king-size double. A travel cot and high chair are available for babies.
The outside space was amazing, very large secluded garden with loads of seating areas and the best pool (heated) we have ever had. The villa was furnished to an exceptional standard, with many extras included e.g. free wi-fi, sky tv with hundreds of films & hairdryers. The villa was far enough out of town to be quiet but close enough (10mns) for walking to restaurants in the Old Town at night. We were pleasantly surprised to have a maid service in the middle of our week and the pool was cleaned mid week too. Great to have an owner who called our first night to make sure everything was ok, and called again on our last night to check all was well. Eric (the owner) was really helpful and easily contactable. … see more
