(2am with 10 people) Honest mistake and these things happen I guess however it's a first in all my years of villa renting (calls went unanswered.but it was probably 10 or 11pm when we first tried) House itself is nice enough but feels a little small upstairs. However more roomy in the downstairs lounge but there is no tv. Cinema is off the pool and looks like could be a comfortable room however despite no instruction when we did get it working there are only French movies. Netflix would solve this. Internet works inside the house but not outside or near the pool where I think it counts. Grounds around the villa are an asset. Town views are to die for and despite dirt roads to the villa are OK providing nobody comes in the opposite direction. Centre of town is less than 10 min. I recommend the area and this villa is probably one of the best available.

Stunning views from the infinity pool and the Villa Very well-managed with attentive and prompt replies to any queries we may have We were a party of 12 but as the Villa next door is also available to rent and at a similar standard one can go large with numbers many thanks for a memorable stay Steve & Sue plus Family x
