I can't think of anything wanting. Only minor niggle was a couple of shutters were faulty. Loads of parking space Town is really nice with good beach and enough bars and cafes to cater for us with plenty more a short drive away. Lots of local history within easy drive and never any problems parking. Mountains only 45 mins so lots of variety. Downside - it was hot!

They have thought of everything that you could possibly need for a perfect family holiday. Smile on my 5 year olds son when he saw amount of floats they had to have fun in the pool :) He had a great time. Location is great too, sandy beach is nearby- car is essential though and great places to eat dinners. Owners gave us great tips and suggestions before we arrived. We enjoyed our stay and I would highly recommend this Villa to everyone.
