Without doubt the best villa I have ever stayed in, a true paradise. Our expectations were high as the listing looked so amazing but the villa was even better than we had hoped. It’s just beautiful, a really lovely villa with everything you could want. All of the four bedrooms were incredibly comfortable with en-suite bathrooms. The sitting-room was lovely but we spent all of our time outside on the terrace and in the pool. And so much space – always somewhere to disappear with a book if you need peace and quiet. The staff were great, they had made us a delicious dinner for our arrival and an amazing breakfast the next day. We had thought it would be odd having staff around but they were very discreet and incredibly helpful when required – doing shopping for us, booking restaurants and arranging cars. As others have mentioned the beach isn’t great – a fair amount of rubbish washes up in the mornings – but the pool is so lovely we never even considered swimming in the sea and the view from the patio and pool skips the beach and looks out directly to the sea. The sunrises and sunsets are just awesome, we never got bored of watching the sun set (with a beer usually!). Lovina is just 10 minutes by car with a huge number of restaurants to choose from; and a couple of them will collect you from the villa which is very convenient. I had read many reviews of the dolphin watching that were pretty mixed but we loved it – only about a dozen boats near us and we saw dozens and dozens of dolphin as well as flying fish and a pair of incredible blue marlins – one of the highlights of our trip. In the midst of British winter I will always think back to Villa the Mango Trees to cheer myself up!
