Out of the mouths of babes……
I’ve just had such a giggle, checking in guests into Villa Stavroulla in Coral Bay/Peyia. This is one of the most beautiful 4 bed villas and I get such a kick from showing it to the arrivals -but today was better than ever. Let me explain….
Meeting the holidaymakers at the meeting point,the children, four in total, were all out of the car and ready to play. As I am a poser and drive a convertible, the children were enthralled and wanted to look at it- so I offered to drive them to the villa, with their parents following in the car behind. This suited everyone , though I got nervous that the parents may detour and leave the collective brood with me for an hour or so! (Actually, I wouldn’t have minded: they were charming!)
Anyway, the only boy, a very confident, guestimated 10 year old called Will, sat next to me – and in the way only children can, gave me the lowdown on the families in a brief 3 mins drive to the villa. Two families were, apparently, spending their holiday together but I shouldn’t worry coz they all get on and won’t be arguing. Catherine, one of the pretty little girls, likes to be called Kitty because she doesn’t like spelling her long name – and Mummy and Daddy don’t shout too much but Will is going to be the first in the pool.
Delightful! Especially when the parents looked SO worried when I got to the villa and explained I’d been briefed!!
Seriously good fun – and lovely people staying in a fantastic villa.
