We have 2 young children, Stewart and Donna were very accommodating for them putting the stair gates up before we arrived there was also a baby cot and high chair. We loved the garden which was also very child friendly all enclosed and there was a cover for the pool that heated it when closed. The pool was amazing lovely and warm which was also great for the kids. The villa was well equipped with a large TV, wifi, games, DVDs, books, CDs and a portable speaker that you can connect your phone too. Stewart and Donna were great after we booked sending through lots of helpful information on the villa and things to do, the villa is about a 10 minute walk from local shops and resturants, we had lunch out a couple of times but we mostly eat at the BBQ area at the villa. The local supermarket was only a 5 minute drive away and had everything we needed. We also headed to the beach for a day which was beautiful, there were lots of nice cafes and restaurants at the marina but you really need a car to get there. We can't recommend this villa enough it was just stunning and Stewart and Donna where lovely to deal with.

The bedrooms are pretty, the bed comfortable, and there is a good supply of towels. It's a two minute walk to the historic centre and art museum. We managed to park right outside on the road. Only one negative - the heating was switched on just before we arrived, so it was a day before we felt warm. If we go again in the winter, I would ask for the heating to be put on earlier. We would return to the appartment gladly. It worked so well for us and would for up to six people.

It is everything the website says and more. Julie and Andy were so helpful, both before and during our visit. The village has excellent facilities for immediate needs and is close to fantastic villages, towns, coastline and countryside as well as bigger shopping facilities. Daily walks through the vineyards and fields and friendly neighbours in the cul-de-sac all added to the experience. We were sad to leave and will definitely return to explore the area more and enjoy the peace of the village and its surroundings. Thank you Julie and Andy for making our holiday so enjoyable.
