About the Owner

We instructed our English architect to build this family villa as a peaceful delightful family home, obviously since 1986 we permanently modernised and extended, e.g. building a well equipped bar next to the swimming pool, a funny minigolf under the trees, childrens playground, etc.

The kitchen and bedrooms have since been modernised, although most of our furniture remains stylish for British standards as we like it

We let it out in the summer as we have no more schoolgoing children and to recuperate part of all our maintenance expenses.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The villa was fantastic, we would love to go back (Mat Pine-Croydon,aug.2013)

We really ejoyed the place, great surroundings,pool area+jacuzzi nicely secluded, we enjoyed the many features of the villa and look forward to visit again (summer 2013, Ivesons-Sevenoaks

We had a really fantastic time in your villa, it is really beautiful and very homely, our children loved swimming in the big pool everyday and we loved watching the wildlive surrounding, the minigolf was great fun. "Ursula Currall" Aug. 2012.

We loved the house – quirky and great. Thanks so much. Will you have us again? regards. Carol x

We ate every meal at the marble table, with the gates open so that we could enjoy the view, we liked the old furniture it has character. The pool was so lovely for us and we spent hours in it playing all sorts of ball games! Kind regards, Ros.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

As we drove up to the villa at the start of our family holiday, I just knew that we had made the right choice. I wasn't wrong. The truly romantic atmosphere took us in from the beginning. So much to admire - from the traditional little chapel as we entered the grounds, to the impressive garden housing various treasures such as a dainty lily pond and stone "love" seat. The crazy golf was so much fun and something for all the family to enjoy as was the welcoming pool. The children had the time of their lives. And what amazing views of the sea and countryside from the roof terrace! Inside the villa, we loved the wonderful unique style of the rooms and furniture. What a lovely change to stay in a place with such character. We felt so happy and relaxed. No doubt we will return to this special place.

We are still in love with the site and like to come there even in winter. Romantic atmosphere, especially from the sunroofterrace reaching to the atlantic and mountains. In high season when elsewhere as in the center its crowded you find here exclusive privacy.
