For children and families

 

Having two children of our own, we have deliberately designed the villa to be family friendly, and equipped likewise. 

 

The mosaic-tiled swimming pool is entered via a set of shallow non-slip tiled steps into the shallow-end, making access easy for children and families alike.  

 

The pool itself comprises two sections - one level area at 1.3 m deep in which to play ball games without risk of slipping down a slope into deeper water, and the other at 1.5m for swimming proper. We have kept the whole pool relatively shallow to ensure it quickly heats up and remains warm throughout the summer months. For this reason it is not suitable for diving and parents must be aware it is their responsibility to ensure proper supervision of younger and non-swimmers at all times.

 

Other child and family friendly considerations incorporated in the villa are :

  • Ample plastic and melamine cups, plates and bowls

  • Childrens' cutlery and drinking cups

  • Childrens' toilet seat and step-up stool 

  • Wireless baby monitor

  • UK travel cot on request (small extra charge for linen)

  • Level gravel area for ball games, and basketball hoop

  • Video games console and games - Nintendo Wii

  • Ample board games to keep everyone happy

  • Unlimited wireless broadband

  • Large flat-screen TV and selection of family DVDs

  • Amazon Alexa for voice-controlled entertainment

  • Exterior bathroom so youngsters with wet feet do not need to come into the main house for the toilet, avoiding the risk of slipping

  • Easy clean tiled floors

  • Mattress protectors on all mattresses, with set of PVC waterproof sheets available for extra security if required

 Eco friendly

The villa boasts a number of eco-friendly facilities, including:

  • Solar-heated domestic hot water

  • Solar-heated swimming pool via hidden, roof-mounted panels

  • Low-energy lighting (including smart blue LED pool lighting and under-lit olive trees)

  • PIR sensors on air-con units to switch off automatically after someone has left the room

  • A solar-powered pool robot which cleanses the water and drastically reduces the amount of chemicals needed to keep the pool crystal clear, enhancing your swimming enjoyment

  • Re-cycling facilities
