Every minute detail covered

  • 5 of 5

From booking the apartment to shutting the door behind us on the final day, we were treated by the owner Val, as if we were the only people that mattered. Things we never thought to ask about, were covered, everything we did think about was covered. The owners obviously care for their guests and the Comments Book read like the United Nations have discovered this also!

The site was manicured, the setting was picturesque, the pool a lovely shade of blue, and but for the occasional dog barking......it could have been on a tropical island

The apartment was ultra secure and you might guess......we can't wait to return

Schöne Wohnung für erholsame Ferien

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben im Mai 2016 einen sehr schönen Urlaub für 3 Wochen in dieser Wohnung verbringen dürfen. Die Wohnung ist so, wie in der Beschreibung angegeben. Die Wohnung ist sauber, gepflegt, sehr ruhig, in einem schönen Komplex und liegt auch sehr ruhig in angenehmer Umgebung. Der Pool ist wunderschön, nur war für uns leider im Mai das Wasser manchmal noch etwas frisch. Geschwommen sind wir trotzdem. Die Betreuung durch die Vermieter Val und John war immer gegeben. Wir haben die Zeit sehr genossen.
