Large luxury Villa with very well thought out sitting and eating areas inside and out. Very well equipt kitchen for the home chef! Gardens fully enclosed keeping little ones safe. The pool is heated as described at a steady 29 degrees making swimming a very pleasant experience. Again the pool is kiddy friendly as it can be closed off with locking patio doors. More than adequate wifi speeds and great it tech available. Fully equipped laundry equipment - washer, dryer. No hidden costs / charges. Please be awear that there is not much here for more independent teenagers or for those looking for a strolling, wine drinking, cafe culture. The only criticism I would have is there is no air con or fans available and the bikes needed puncture repairs before we could use them and really would benefit from some maintenance. These are very minor issues and I would have no problems recommending this venue to friends and family, and we will be looking to book to stay here again. Many thanks to Nicholas for his superb communication and for helping make this a stress free vacation.

Local village is a short walk away which provided daily fresh bread croissants etc... We did have a slight issue but we were seen to in very timely manner and we were very pleased with quickly the problem was resolved. If you want a quiet, relaxing holiday then we highly recommend staying here. Ideal for a driving holiday! Hopefully we can stay again next year!

It was absolute peace and quiet the whole time but was only a 15 minute drive from stunning beaches. The gite was well equipped and clean with everything you needed. The sun shone everyday and we had an amazing holiday.
