Superb Villa!

5 of 5
First class Villa. A real home from home. Spotlessly clean on arrival. Everything was well appointed inside & out. Perfect swimming pool for young children due to the wide shallow stepped area. Lovely quiet location, but still easy to access the whole Cap area. We would certainly stay again.

Perfect Villa for a wonderful family holidsy

5 of 5
The villa was exactly as shown in photos, beautifully clean and well equipped plus the beds are very comfortable! We were 4 adults and 2 children and we all loved it. The heated pool was absolutely lovely. The covered outside dining and seating area is perfect for a bit of shade. The owners greated us on arrival , showed us around and left us to our holiday. We had a fault with the electric garage door which was fixed the same day. The village of Lege is a short cycle ride away and there are lots of places to visit and perfect beaches only a 15 minute drive (or slightly longer cycle) . Overall a great holiday!
