Guestbook comments from the manager
Casa Monaco was perfect for our holiday. The accommodation was immaculate, a perfect size for us , and had mostly everything we needed. It would have been nice to have enough sunbeds for all, but that was just a minor issue. The views were spectacular, and we were treated to several impressive lightning storms during our stay. The house was a great base for us, both my wife and I are keen runners so were happy to run down to the bakery and shop each morning, although the climb back up was a challenge. Thanks to all at Happy Holiday Homes for making the holiday very special, whilst we didn’t need any support whilst out there (other than for wifi access which was resolved very quickly) the service you provided in advance of the holiday was the best that I have experienced. I would certainly consider booking with you again in the future and would gladly recommend you to family and friends.
