It is in a central area ideal for families with the benefit of having a large walled garden and pool. Would have no hesitation in recommending and will definitely be returning. It is a home from home.

The quality of the décor and the taste is wonderful. It has everything you need and more. It is incredibly clean, very comfortable and we cannot recommend it enough. It is a home to relax and have fun it at the same time. We are already booked to return.
