The garden and pool are immaculate; plus the garden is securely fenced - ideal for our dogs! Louise was very friendly, welcoming and so helpful with any query we had about the property or area. There are many walks directly from the villa on quiet lanes and forest tracks. All the local cafes are great and an easy walk alongside the lagoon either towards the beach (20 mins stroll) or inland (45 minutes stroll). There are also many towns of interest a drive from the villa - a car is definitely needed.
