top vakantievilla op paradijselijke plek

5 of 5
Prachtige, zeer ruime vakantievilla op stille plek met prachtige uitzichten rondom. Mooie tuin, voldoende schaduwplekken en heerlijk, verwarmd zwembad. Hier kun je echt een onvergetelijke vakantie houden. Wij hebben in ieder geval genoten. We kunnen iedereen deze villa aanbevelen. Zeer behulpzame eigenaar die altijd stand-by voor je staat. In de omgeving is voldoende te bekijken en er zijn voldoende restaurantjes in directe omgeving .
