We were thrilled with the place. We arrived late and we're greeted by Andrea with a smile. Milk, spaghetti, cereal and toiletries were all left for us which we thought was a great touch. We told Andrea that we would be bringing a baby and so he left us a high chair, travel cot, toys and nappies it was great! The holiday home itself was spacious, beautifully laid out and well equipped. The pool was amazing and the sun loungers and chairs allowed us to chill by the pool. Bikes and lilos were also left which was the cherry on top. We would 100% recommend this holiday home to anyone.
