Wonderful place to stay

5 of 5
Our group of 8 had a wonderful holiday here at Castello Claves. Perfect spot to unwind, and also lots to see (by car) in the surrounding area. Easy walking distance to restaurants, but good facilities to self cater and eat on the picturesque balcony which benefits from the prevailing sea breeze. We stayed whilst it was very hot, however the castle was cool and didn't feel hot at all. Gardens and pool were magical with lots of sunny and shady spots and sun lounges. Our host Lilianna was wonderful. We will never forget this holiday!

The owners were very hospital and kept the pool well cleaned each day and gave useful local advice. We enjoyed our two weeks at Villa Theresa very much. However, WIFI connection was intermittent and kitchen and kitchen facilities were limited for the number of occupants.
