10 out of 11 people recommend staying here

Family from Northampton, United Kingdom Aug 2016

We found the house to be very well equipped, comfortable and clean. Set in a quiet village with a butchers, bakers, tobacconist , bar and local supermarket if offered pretty much everything we needed - the only thing missing was somewhere to walk out to in the evening for a meal or a drink , however we were blessed with lovely weather and a lovely patio area with furniture to sit outsides pretty much all day.

The pool was an ideal size and suited our needs, the kitchen well stocked and the English satellite TV a bonus to keep up with the Olympics. All round a lovely place to stay and we would thoroughly recommend it.

Family from Berkshire, United Kingdom Aug 2015

Had a lovely week staying in this spacious, well equipped house. Lovely pool to return to after the beach. Facilities all close and easily accessible by foot, bike or car. Our only wish would be to improve the comfort of the double beds and provide towels for guests as standard.

Family from Twickenham, United Kingdom Aug 2013

Beautiful villa. Everything you could require in the kitchen which is very well equipped. Bedrooms light and airy with most being double aspect for the cooling evening beeeze to circulate. Excellent bathrooms, showers you just didnt want to get out of. Downstairs the open plan layout, tastefully and lovingly furnished with some very nice pieces. I cant find fault with this property in any way . Other reviewers have criticised the size of the pool but its the size that the details say it is. Its deep enough everywhere for a good swim and we absolutely loved it. We knew the moment we walked into this property that we wouldnt want to leave and we didnt. Johanna was a miracle. Very helpful and always very quick to answer queries and was extremely hard working and helpful . I would strongly recommend this property and would stay again in a flash.

From Solihull, United Kingdom Jun 2013

Lovely house down stairs, large kitchen/diner/lounge very modern and well equipped, downstairs toilet and utility room and a study type room with a 2 seater sofa and flatscreen wall mounted TV with English freeview.Outside the patio is large and well equipped with sunloungers,table and chairs,BBQs and pool. Unfortunately we couldnt use the pool as storms before we arrived blew the cover off and dirtied the pool. Johanna the villa manager (who is a lovely helpful Lady) struggled all week with the help of her electric robot pool cleaner which was left in the pool with an electric cable (didnt fancy sharing with these accessories). There are two bathrooms upstairs one ensuite both are well equipped and a good size. Where the house lets itself down a bit is the bedrooms, we used the ensuite room (there were only 3 of us staying) the bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable to us but others may prefer it this way. The rest of the bedroom was very basic, 1 bedside cabinet and 1 wardrobe, it really could do with a small chest of drawers to accommodate underwear etc and a flat surface for jewelley etc. (we had to empty the bottom of the wardrobe of extra bedding to facilitate this problem) also a mirror would be very useful as when the bathroom is in use you could then do makeup, hair etc. Also if you feel the heat like me, you may want to bring a fan as there arent any in the house(I knew before I arrived) the curtains are white net type and do not block out the light, so if you left the shutters open for ventilation you may be disturbed by the early morning daylight. Overall we really enjoyed ourselves and wouldnt hesitate to recommend this villa. Also Lone was very helpful before we arrived, and she helped to make sure we had everything we needed, also informed us of anything we would be more comfortable taking with us.We took our own towels but I think you can rent these from Johanna, also I was a bit disappointed that although we paid Johanna 75 euros on arrival to cover exit cleaning and laundry she hadnt made the beds up. So after a long drive we had to start fighting with duvet covers etc.(not happy)

From Market Harborough, United Kingdom Aug 2011

We had a fabulous holiday and the property was just what we wanted, there were only five of us staying, I would say 7 would have been the maximum.
The house is out of the hustle and bustle of La Palmyre but near enough to go into the centre or beach if you wished.
There were only 2 things that I would say let it down for us, whilst I liked the idea of a separate tv room there wasnt adequate room for us all to watch a tv/dvd together without sitting on the floor.
The only other thing I felt let it down was that for the price you have paid for renting the villa its a bit much to ask you pay 7euros to the cleaner.
On balance though we would book again as we had such a fabulous holiday.

From Chelmsford, United Kingdom Jul 2011

Lovely modern house in a quiet neighbourhood. House is very well appointed with the kitchen particularly well equipped. We were two families, one of 4 and one of 5, with children ranging from ages of 5 to 10 and the house worked very well for us.

Plus points: all mod cons, well equipped kitchen, 2 barbecues, good TV room, well designed and well furnished house.
Minor grumbles: satellite TV was not working, pool cover had seen better days, duvets were all singles (even for double beds) and were high tog value so rather warm for summer holiday let!

All in all, a very nice house in a peaceful, quiet location. The minor grumbles make it a good rather than excellent rating...
