It was really lovely to have a range of areas to sit, relax and eat in. All of the bedrooms were large and opened on to the pool so everyone felt that they had a luxurious room. We were a party of six adults and two children (ages 1 & 2.5yrs) and it was brilliant having a little play area as well as a stair guard to take the stress levels down. Walking to the lagoon every day was a nice chance to get out and was close enough to take pushchairs and sometimes even the bikes that were there. Andrea met us when we arrived and was fabulous at giving us the right amount of info to make the most of the villa and the surrounding area.

The house was beautiful, clean and well equipped, the pool was welcome respite from the hot weather and the vegetable and herb garden was a lovely touch. Would definitely recommend for a couple or adventurous family who are looking for a great base for sightseeing in a quiet, rural relaxed place.
