we,our party of 3,had this lovely villa to ourselves on the 15/22 nd october 2009.at first we couldnt locate the villa.having done independant travel and driven an hour from antayla airport.we did txt the rep to say we were on our way,but after the most rubbish directions to the villa ever [given out by the owners prior to departure] the rep phoned to find out where we were and then came to find us ....
although this was not the best villa i have EVER stayed in,as we always book villa holidays,it was great value for money.at only £450 for the week including a £50 cash back deal.....not as cheap as a last minute deal.[the record being £199 for a castle in malta]...but it actually was as good as the picture on the web.the company rep was always on hand for any problems or help in finding a non touristy good value for money turkish restaurant.the hot water never run out....which is always a bug bear for me normally.there were plenty of clean towels and the whole villa was spotless.although you would expect this,especially as it was a brand new villa.
during our stay we seem to be placed in a mainly german tourist area.certainly most of the 5*hotels on the beachfront were for german tourists and we did feel a little out of place.
i opted to stay in the penthouse bedroom with ensuite bathroom.very nice.although it was fairly cool in the evennings and the heating needed to be used....which did not work in my room,nor the aircon for the daytime.it blew the same tepid temperature out all the time.which meant i had to go to bed with many layers of clothes on,or sleep in a twin room on the middle floor.there was also no wardrobe on the top floor in either bedroom.so had to leave my dress collection in my suitcase.
also the other noticable difference in this villa was that nothing xtra was supplied,which i had never experienced before.the only acception was a pack of dishwasher tablets.otherwise there was no washing up liquid/washing powder/red or brown sauce/salt/pepper/bottle opener/cork screw/dishcloths......and only one toilet roll per bathroom.so if you stay here bring or buy your own.although i did find a travel hairdryer ,2 pin plug version in the wardrobe on the 2nd foor.
dont get me wrong we absolutely loved the villa and i would recommend it highly.we were left alone all week,with help on hand if we needed it.the whole complex is security cctv controlled,very comforting especially as there is no safe in the villa for valuables.
its location is nice and secluded from the tourist traps and the nonsence sold in nearly every tacky shop in the area.you are totally unbothered and the beach is a 10 min stroll down the road....all in all a wonerful stay and as we visited the area for the wealth of history /museums and amphitheatres,we wernt dissapointed.
