Weather wise, our first 4 days were fine, between 15 and 17 degrees which for me is about as good as you can hope for anywhere in Europe in early February. It was a very wet end to the week though. The Villa itself met our expectations. It's listed as sleeping 4, but for me, it's too small for 4 adults as there is only the one bedroom and then a pull out bed in the living room. Might be ok for kids. There's lots to like about the villa; It's well located and just an easy 15 minute walk down to Cabanas promenade. The villa has a lovely compact garden with beautiful planting and is quite private. There are some sun beds on a nice decking area and a barbecue (not used by us) There is a lovely hot tub that was well used during the week that my wife and I were there, even in the evenings when it was chilly, it was lovely to sit in the hot tub with a beer or glass of wine. There are a few areas noted below that with minimal work and expense would make a holiday more enjoyable for future guests. The bed needs new pillows, we've experienced this before elsewhere. For me villa owners should replace the pillows every season. The shower screen needs to be replaced, it's far too small and water goes everywhere in the bathroom, constant mopping up required. A little bit of investment in new cutlery and crockery wouldn't go amiss. That's it, not really complaints, more suggestions for improvements. Overall, we had a good week in the villa and the photos on owners direct are representative of the villa. The owners were helpful replied promptly to all questions and were there on arrival to explain all the details required. For Cabanas itself, we found it a little quiet in February although I believe it's a very busy place in summertime.

It's a beautiful beautiful traditional townhouse, decorated well and with all the modern appliances you could need and so convenient to everything. A bonus is all the outdoor space, great for catching the sun, couldn't of asked for anything more!! I would also like to thank the Owner for a quick and easy booking process and her help, tips and suggestions on places to eat and places to visit etc. it made all the difference to our stay and can't wait to return.
