The villa, having been redecorated, was so clean and spacious with everything needed for your holiday. The location was perfect, near a long sandy beach, a fantastic golf course and five star hotels, the facilities of which could be used. Although we had a car, there is a bus service which runs regularly during the busy months. I would strongly recommend the property.

The villa is very secure so we could leave the young children to run around and play, there was also lots of inflatables and games for my little girl to use in the pool which was great. The bar set up in the garage was brilliant for the adults to enjoy a drink while the kids were safe in bed. The villa is in a great location with a supermarket very close which had everything we needed. A taxi into the old town is only a few euros and we found it a very easy and not too expensive way of getting around, the atmosphere in the old town was great even in November. We was also surprised to get such great weather for November, we got plenty of sun with a day temperature of around 20 degrees. All in all everyone had a fantastic holiday and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
