                                                              We really enjoyesd the spacious, climated and comfortable property. near to the city and the beach we could reach all important points in a few minutes. we had a good customerservice. help with transfers and flat. Vila Ral itselve is a nice location for holidays. we can recommend the flat. It is ideal for a nice and relaxing holdays. You dont need a car to visit all the attractions.
