The villa itself is wonderful with beautiful grounds and a superb good sized swimming pool. The nearest resort of Can Picafort however, is not pleasant at all. We arrived very early in the morning on a Sunday and as such would suggest that the villa owners should offer a welcome pack of the essentials. As with all the villas we have rented the kitchen is too small for the number of people and the fridge freezer is far too small for more than 4 people. Overall though the villa is beautiful and peaceful and would ideally suit a family.
