The Experience

Chantelle’s well-travelled parents bought this villa in 1981 as a grand holiday home. Now Chantelle and Fraser have turned it into an exceptional retreat. Chantelle does joyful front of house, Fraser is chef – and how! Terrace breakfasts flaunt pastries, fruit fresh from their own orchards and a great view of the sea; delicious lunches (on request) and tea and cakes (complimentary) are delivered to the serene outdoor pool. Bedrooms – the most peaceful at the back – are luxurious, glamorous, with hugely comfortable beds and Sky TV; contemporary bathrooms sport organic oils and rainwater showers; and there’s an indoor/outdoor sitting room on whose wicker sofas you may lounge all day. The details will delight you: board games, books, exotic garden flowers… organic wines from the vineyard on the hill, bikes to borrow (Fraser is a keen cyclist) and log fires in winter. Linger on the terraces, stroll the stunning gardens, play giant chess, nip off to Lagos (castle walls, cobbled streets), discover the famous beaches. And return to this wonderful, heart-warming place.
