Fantastic holiday

5 of 5
We visited this property in mid July, a family holiday for 4 also accompanied by 2 very small dogs. The holiday home was absolutely fabulous and contained everything we could ever need, it was very clean, spacious and had plenty of room in the garden area as well. The property was located with just a short 10 min downhill walk into the town and there are excellent transport links (cheap bus or taxi) back up the hill for those people less able to negotiate the hill. We were very fortunate in that we had fantastic weather as well which made the holiday amazing, but the owners also cater for those rainy days as there were a wide selection of games, and tv and radio also available. We would have no hesitation in visiting again as we had a tremendous time and look forward to returning again real soon.
