Fantastic rental home with great pool. Ideal base for a family who wish to explore the area.

5 of 5
Lovely time. Would take great day trips and come back and have fun in the pool. Good size property with everything you need for your stay. Mafalda was very helpful. She welcomed us to the property and also sent us an email with a list of great places to visit. Would highly recommend.

The villa was lovely, the pool photo is a little misleading as the pool is actually green, not blue. The instructions on how to get to the villa are a little misleading, we were advised to come off the A8 at junction 20,when in fact, if you come off the A8 at Junction 21 it is easier to find, perhaps a sign on the road just before the turn off would be good as it is not a named road, and just a dirt track that is easily missable. Also, it might be good to advise people staying in the villa that the pool is shared by both villas, as again, the photos are a little misleading, I thought the pool was for our sole use.Having said all that, the villa is clean, the location is quiet, and all amenities are there. There was some bottles of wine, bread and a bottle of water waiting for us, which was a lovely touch.
