Detached Villa with Private Heated Pool in Quiet Location
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

Wonderful villa in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect villa for families or friends. The facilities are second to none and the extras such as toys and inflatable for the children to use around the large pool and in the garden are a real boon. The property was really clean and comfortable and all the equipment was available for us to use. Instructions and helpful advice on shopping, restaurants, beaches etc are all in a handy folder in the lounge. The property manager Julia and her husband made us very welcome and were helpful and friendly. We will definitely return to cassa luz and highly recommend it for its location and amenities. A car is definitely an advantage.
