We found the property very clean, modern and comfortable with provisions such as ice and filtered water, wine fridge, bean bags by pool, comfortable furniture and a beautiful, practical, well planned kitchen with all cutlery and crockery you could possibly need...including cocktail glasses! The pool is clean, deep and has diving board. The trampoline, garden, pool, table tennis and table football are all visible from the seating area outside kitchen, where there are comfortable chairs and a dining set to seat 10. There are beaches 1 hr away and a beautiful lake with pedals/kayaks/zip wires about 40 mins away. We had a very relaxing time here. The photos do not do the house justice, it feels a lot bigger especially kitchen and lounge area.

Spend the most lovely holiday in Casa Principessa - truely one week in Paradise. Not only is the house and the nature around it truly top class in every sense. The stay also was made perfect all the way from how you are welcomed, to the guiding to restaurants and places to go or things to do, to the kindness of the people meeting you there- we even had the forgotten sunglasses sent home to Denmark with a smile. Same goes for the recipe for the lovely welcome cake. Can’t think of one single thing that could have made it a better stay.
