Very neat, clean and tidy

5 of 5
Our stay was very pleasant and relaxing. Our hosts David and Simon made us very welcome and went the extra mile to make us feel at home. The accommodation is spotless. I would recommend this holiday accommodation if you are looking for relaxation with beautiful surroundings and views of the mountains. We will of course be returning. Trevor and Irene Jones.

Peaceful, relaxing, wonderful views - a real gem.

5 of 5
We loved our stay. The location was just right for us - peaceful and remote - and we enjoyed some restful days at the villa as well as some day trips out to the beach and other local towns and villages. Beaches are around an hour and a half away but the motorways were very clear, and with GPS it was an easy drive, plus an opportunity to see more of the region. The villa is a good size and we had plenty of space as a family of 5 including three teenagers. The owner answered all my questions prior to the trip, and friendly support was on hand during the holiday itself. The welcome pack was very welcome as we arrived on a Bank Holiday when shops were shut! Overall a lovely two weeks, many happy memories to look back on.
