                          What a lovely Cottage! Heaven on Earth...

                          5 of 5
                          I spent a week in this beautiful Cottage with my parents and it was a wonderful time for all of us. First of all because of the high quality of everything inside the house. Excellent bedrooms, very quiet and full of sun, during the day, with an unforgetable view; excelent living room, kitchen, bathrooms, patios, etc. Everything is decorated with such a good taste... And everything reveals the owner's touch, the owner's kindness and generosity towards guests! The house has 3 patios with exceptional view to the sea and the sunset. Since Azoia may have some cloudy mornings, the house is very cosy and has a big fire that we used once, just for the pleasure and comfort of being seated by the fire, seeing the sea... The house is full of beautiful details and has the best comfort ever. If it's hot outside, the air conditioned works perfectly; if it's cold outside, we can heat the house and seat by the fire. The 3 patios are places where we feel like in heaven. It's difficult to choose the best patio... The Cottage has internet and all the devices and gadgets that allows being connected to the world, and for me (as a journalist and writer) this Cottage was so cosy and so beautiful, that I want to go back a lot of times. To spend there good time with family, but also to write there and to walk around, since the Cottage is really well placed, in the center of a small village, where the neighbours are pleasant and discrete. Me and my parents we fell in love with the owner of this Cottage and with the house, and that's why I'm writting this review: to share with others our wonderful experience. And the dream of coming back very soon!

                          4 of 5
                          Very peaceful place to spend some quality time. Slightly dated but thats the whole point of this place. Slightly let down by the lack of wifi in the apartment. Very clean and tidy everywhere. Will certainly stay again. Raul
