Allt du behöver för en härlig semester!

  • 4 of 5

Vi har haft 10 härliga dagar i detta fantastiska hus! Vi har varit 6 vuxna och 4 barn. Huset är stort och ger tillfälle att hitta en lugn vrå även om vi har varit många. Poolen är fantastisk och det största sovrummet är underbart. Det är lätt att ta sig ner till Tavira centrum till fots och det tar inte mer än 10 minuter även om en del av vägen är efter trafikerad väg, det enda som inte kändes perfekt. Men det är ett så litet minus. Vi kommer gärna tillbaka!! Fantastiskt hus, stränderna fantastiska och Tavira underbart!
