We had a fantastic holiday, the villa was spotless and ideal for the family, the views were stunning. Our only regret, we didn't book for a fortnight- Mr G - Lancashire.

We have taken villa holidays for 6 years and all things considered "La Catana" was the best. The views are simply wonderful- Mr W -Kent

Had a great time. The villa was lovely and had everything we needed. Hope to come back in the future- Mrs H- Cheshire

Dream holiday

  • 5 of 5

Having never rented a villa before or booked a holiday directly we really did hit the jackpot with this Villa. The setting is spectacular and was a real surprise to us when we woke on our first morning. The pictures don't do it justice!

The villa has everything to accommodate a family and made our stay very comfortable. Due to the hectic day to day lifestyles we normally have, the quietness and privacy in this villa was a dream, and yet not too far from the local shops, restaurants etc.

I couldn't recommend this villa enough :)
