Absolutely beautiful villa, tranquil idyllic garden with a stunning view of the hills. The villa is at the end of a small ~800m lane, far enough from the main road that the only noises were wildlife, farm animals, and the occasional scooter, yet close enough that you’re not isolated from local amenities. Everybody we met in the village was friendly and helpful, with no one trying to give us a hard sell. There is a mass beach-clean every Wednesday evening, and a lot of local awareness of the value of protecting the marine environment, so the beach is clean and quiet despite having several restaurants and some hotels along its front, and there are loads of opportunities for diving and snorkeling. But the best thing about our stay was how well we were looked after by the friendly, helpful and unobtrusive staff. Putu the manager can arrange lifts and tours, and help with pretty much anything. Iluh the housekeeper is absolutely lovely – friendly, helpful, amazing cook, and completely took care of us. The gardeners and cleaner were also super-friendly, and everywhere was kept completely spotless. Actual luxury.
