We were 15 people and still the house made it feel spacious and calm. All the bedrooms are very big and breezy, the kitchen has everything you need and it was nice and clean on arrival. The villa has a beautiful garden with a lovely pool and a big terrace to enjoy in the evenings. The only issue we experienced was that the WiFi did not work very well. Bas, the owner of the property, was also very helpful during our time there. He is incredibly service minded and truly just wishes you the best experience at his place. We enjoyed our stay very much, and would gladly come back for another week.

The children enjoyed the pool and the games room. The big windows opened to let in the breeze as the house is on a hill overlooking the sea. In August any breeze was welcome!! You definitely need a car as there are no shops to walk to easily. The port area was good for restaurants. Barcelona is really close and we found parking easy. Arriving late in the afternoon it would have been nice to maybe have some bottled water and a welcome pack in the house and ideally air con through out rather than in the upstairs bedroom. Muslin curtains to stop the mosquitos at the French doors in all rooms also. The family had a really good and memorable time
