We were pleased to reach Villa Paradisa after a long drive; we were very pleased with the quality of the service and accomodation. The room was large and great views. Marilyn and Martin, plus all the staff were very friendly and knew the local area so well--they are happy to help with bookings. We would be happy to return.
