A perfectly peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our holiday at Villa Tranquillo and can honesty say that for a holiday that spanned 3 generations, all have said it was one of their favourite holidays ever!

With beautiful views in every diection and a house with every element thought through, so your stay is comfortable, I would highly recommend.

Facilities mean everyone has something to enjoy, beautiful pool, tennis, billiards, darts etc. To relaxing seating areas in every shady corner. Thank you so much to Irma and Joost for making sure we enjoyed every moment.

Very quiet location for 2 families with teenage children - you can make as much noise as you like!

  • 5 of 5

We were a little concerned that no one had reviewed the villa prior to our stay but we need not have have worried. Mark the owner and the second Mark who looks after the villa during your stay made the whole experience most enjoyable.

A car is a must - the nearest bar / restaurant is 1.5km away and the nearest big supermarket around 5km. We tended to use the excellent BBQ area rather than eat out, and there are numerous seating areas. However we did venture to El Coto the local restaurant/bar provides good local cuisine and is excellent value for money. 8 of us ate for under 150 euros including drinks.

The tennis court, pool table and excellent pool kept the kids entertained for hours - with the weather in the mid 30s we spent all day outside and did trek to the local beaches about 15 minutes away a couple of times. With temps that high outside you need to manage the temp inside the house carefully during the day to ensure you are able to sleep overnight. There is aircon in the lounge which is where the kids decided to sleep, which meant we were able to double up the fans for the adults upstairs and found this to be a very comfortable solution.

The kitchen is pretty well equipped and we only found ourselves to be short of 1 or 2 pieces of cutlery but there are plastic cups for out door drinks which makes a lot of sense.

We have stayed in many villas over the years and I would summarise this as well equipped although not luxurious but probably one of the best value for money villas we have stayed in.
