Tudo funciona desde os eletrodomésticos ,aos ares condicionados. A piscina sempre impecável e quase sempre sem ninguém. De notar a simpatia e a prestabilidade da Srª Kate. O Sr Graham é uma pessoa em quem se pode confiar. Muito obrigado a todos.

Our children particularly enjoyed the games room with a quality pool table and table football. The villa has everything needed for a family holiday or for groups of friends. A car is essential, but there are bars and restaurants within a few minutes drive of the villa. The various beaches are also only a few kilometres away. The property manager Andrew was very responsive regarding my booking enquiry and with the arrangements for our arrival. I would happily recommend this property to friends and family.

Our first impression of the house!, STUNNING!!. Bedrooms lovely, comfy beds, clean bedding, fresh towels, lovely fitted wardrobes. Bathrooms fantastic, extremely clean, plenty of hot water. Front room, really comfortable, seating great, tv, DVD, dining area, books and dvds to use. kitchen top notch, everything top quality with fab appliances, washing machine, dishwasher, oven. Outside WOW!! Lovely bbq area, extremely relaxing, once again every thing you need seating etc. pool area very relaxing and again spotless, we actually had the pool to ourselves :) Local amenities great, definetly use the welcome book for ideas of restaurants and the local supermarket which are all within easy walking distance, approx under 10 mins. we had some fun night's in the local bars, ( again use the welcome book). locals are so friendly and welcoming. A really lovely touch was a welcome pack waiting for us!! This included some lovely refreshments, wine, pate, juice, crackers, loo roll, this enabled us to unpack and unwind before having to pop to shops this was greatly apprecitated. As for the beach just beautiful!!. Highly recommended, will definitely be booking again.
