Lovely Villa, Amazing Views, Will be going back!

5 of 5
I stayed with my boyfriend and the family, we had the beautiful Paris room and our own bathroom while the rest of the family took the other end of the villa with their own bathroom. The beautiful beach was an hours drive away and it was completely worth it the views along the way were amazing and there is nothing like a family roadtrip to get everyone in the mood for a day at the beach!! We spent the nights on the veranda out to the front, the real magic happens when it gets dark and the bats start to leave their hiding places!! Over all everything was clean, very imaginative with the room designs and exactly as described in the description, we are already planning our next holiday there! I ant wait for it to be fully refurbished, I would make sure that you rent a car to try the beaches and the stunning mountains to the south! Thanks for the trip! Fiona

Idéal!

L'appartement est très spacieuse et bien équipée. Elle n'est pas loin de Ax, et le petit station de ski de Ascou (très jolie!) est proche aussi. Les propriétaires Bernard et Simone étaient vraiment accueillants
