There are many shops and restaurant beyond on your doorstep (try Ventorillo El Nene!). Andrew is very prompt and kind in his communication. The house is modern and clean and perfect for a family of four. We had an extremely comfortable stay. I highly recommend this house and hope to rent it again (soon)!

The house was beautiful and had everything one needed, the natural pool was a highlight so enjoyed by us all, the sea and beach so close at hand,
