In addition to each villa’s complimentary Organic Breakfast Basket, guests have the option to pre-stock their villa kitchen with their favourite foods, from specialty ingredients for an decadent breakfast to cooking essentials and homemade snacks, beverages and a medley of locally-grown organic produce, all of which you may note on your pre-arrival questionnaire or request from your villa host during your stay.
