Spacious and well kept

  • 4 of 5

Lovely, well kept, clean property with all the necessities you could need for a holiday.

We enjoyed a lovely family holiday and despite the slightly colder weather made use of the garden and pool. Size and layout of the villa meant we could all be together but have privacy if you wanted a quiet 5 minutes.

Would highly recommend for a group of friends or family

Spacious, private house and garden

  • 5 of 5

A welcoming, airy house with plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing. The property was clean with everything in the room ready to use with an extremely well equipped kitchen if you would want to cook! Local bakery within easy walking distance. We had lovely weather for the time of year and spread out around the pool and terraces. The nearest coastal town is half an hour by car with a beautiful beach. Recommended restaurants are pinned to the notice board with plenty to choose from in a variety of price brackets. Had a thoroughly relaxing, enjoyable week.
