Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in New Golden Mile
Excellent location close to pools and clubhouse, beaches within 10 minutes walk

Whether it is access to wonderful golf courses, or close vicinity to the beach this is the place to choose. The true jewel of the urbanisation is its clubhouse.

Guestbook comments from the owner
'We had a great time at the villa, the villa was lovely and the country clubs facilities were very nice, we really enjoyed ourselves' - Helen Marshall
'My family and I had a fantastic holiday staying in Neil's three bedroom apartment on the Costa Galera resort in August 2007. The accommodation was clean and welcoming and well equipped for the five of us. The variety of pools available on the complex meant that you could always find a quite pool if you wanted and the family pool alongside the pool bar was a great place for the kids to make new friends and enjoy themselves safely. I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to other families' - Anne-Marie Walker
