The villa was spacious, extremely well kept, the pool was very popular - we had a fab holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa was absolutely amazing, very clean & well kept. The kitchen was well equipped and the laundry room was well used. Paying the extra for the heated pool was money well spent. The only drawback was the position of the barbecue - it’s placed completely separate from the entertaining area...we didn’t make use of the barbecue for this reason.

I would HIGHLY recommend this beautiful villa to anyone who doesn’t want to travel too far - as there are restaurants and a bar within walking distance.

Many thanks to Florence and her team for making our holiday a very relaxing experience.

Kind regards

Lovely and very spacious, top place.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was lovely and very spacious. What also helped was booking of the holiday was easy , we corresponded with Florence who was able to arrange our transfers to and from airport and she was available to answer any queries we may have had . Only thing to mention that to us could be improved was the BBQ area is to far from everyone else when cooking, would be better near the pool or better still put one on the roof terrace! We highly recommend this villa.

Great place to stay, clean, spacious and good value.

  • 5 of 5

Family party of eleven from 63 yrs to 6 months old and everyone was more than happy about this villa. Nice location, well maintained and good communication from Florence to help us each step of the way. Games room a bonus and a roof terrace on top, several good restaurants a short stroll away and beaches the same. Would definitely come back again.

Perfect for the family - would book here again

  • 5 of 5

Being a first-timer, we did have reservations about the property and location but thankfully everything met our expectations. The villa is located in a rural area so the closest supermarket is a 25 min walk away or 5 mins by cab. The taxis are very prompt and arrive within 10 mins, however the return journey back to the villa was troublesome - I had the location of the villa pinned to my offline Google maps so had to direct many drivers back to the location.

The villa itself was immaculate, we had the bare essentials provided when we arrived which included, milk, bread, eggs and other bits which was nice. The rooms were clean and everything was as we expected it to be. We had cleaners at the villa 2-3 times in the week we were there .

The slight issue we did experience was hot water which seemed to only run hot during the afternoon - dead cold in the morning. We did contact the management regarding this but on the first day the office was closed, on the second day nobody was answering the phone, when we finally did make contact they sent a plumber around to address the issue - as he explained the hot water is supplied via the solar panels on the roof - this was switched over to use both electric and solar power which corrected problem a few days later.

Wifi in the house was available in all areas and the speed was steady and enough for our 7 -8 devices.

If you are travelling around the area then I would recommend a hire car as this would save on taxis. Arranging a transfer from the airport cost us 75 EUR each way via taxi (7 seater) so this was slightly more than expected.

The local supermarket (Apolonia) is the equivalent of UK Waitrose so prices are more expensive here than you would find in Lidl/Aldi which are a little farther away.

Overall, we had a nice holiday, the kids enjoyed the time at the villa with the pool and play rooms as did the adults. The booking process was easy, and our arrival/departure process was laid out clearly so we had no issues.

Highly recommended

Tolles Ferienhaus!

  • 5 of 5

Ein tolles Haus, sauber, gut eingerichtet und ausgestattet. Wir waren als Familie mit 5 Kinder (8-18 Jahre), Eltern, Bruder & Partner da und alle hatten ein passendes Zimmer! Wir hatten Anfangs Oktober die Poolheizung dazu gemietet, die Kinder waren somit stundenlang im Wasser! 2x die Woche kam die Putzfrau und ging durch die Bade/Schlafzimmer, saugen etc. Auch der Poolmann war zugange. Florence und Ihr Team war sehr hilfreich, Buchung, Depot alles einwandfrei geklappt. Haus liegt in Gehnähe von Restaurants, der Spar liegt ca. 5 min weg (hoch dann ewas länger). Sehr empfehlenswert, wir möchten wiederkommen!

Located on a quiet road in Sesmarias and just 1km to the beautiful 'Blue Flag' Castelo beach. A/C, Wi-Fi & Games Room. There are many restaurants and bars in the area within walking distance, including one of the best restaurants in the whole area. Great location.

Excellent family villa with a private pool and relaxing outside area. Close to several stunning beaches.

Close to some of the best beaches in the world like Praia Sao Rafael ,Praia do Castelo, Praia da Galé and many others...

Full A/C. Games room. Wi-Fi.

A great day out for all the family especially the kids! Great location.
