Lovely stay!

5 of 5
The villa was beautiful! Wonderfully clean (the cleanest rental property we have ever stated at). We were made to feel very welcome and the homemade gifts were a lovely touch and greatly appreciated. The views from the outside the villa were spectacular - a very relaxing and peaceful stay. Thank you very much.

Magnifique maison !

5 of 5
Nous avons passé une semaine dans cette superbe maison. Elle dispose d'une superbe vue surplombant la mer. Tout est fait pour le grand confort, décoration de très bon goût, piscine très agréable. L'agence et tout le personnel font tout pour que les hôtes se sentent bien. Le propriétaire est d'une extrême gentillesse, il a été très attentionné avec nous. Ce sont les prestations digne d'un grand hotel mais avec l'avantage d'être dans une location où nous pouvons être indépendant : - courses avant notre arrivée : un grand plus ! - ménage en cours de séjour : ce qui est vraiment très appréciable. - aide lorsque j'ai eu besoin d'une adresse d'une station pour réparer les pneus Les plages aux alentours sont magnifiques et à moins de 10 mins de la maison. Je recommande vivement cette adresse
