Fabulous location, very large,traditional house but be aware- its on the hill! Lots of steps! But what a view! Wish I booked for a month! Very homely,comfortable atmosphere. Loved it.Read more
The property itself is old and large. It was very clean and suited us, we were very please. Positives. Three large airconditioned bedrooms. The villa is a 10 minute walk to the beach and restaurants, may 15 minute walk to the centre and only 5 minutes to the supermarket. I had a car but it was easier to walk in to town than drive and park. You could happily holiday here without a car. Ground/First floor has a sun room (pictured), Kitchen and lounge is on 2nd floor and the three bedrooms 3rd floor. Quite a lot of stairs, this was not a problem for us. The swimming pool is big enough and well maintained, it is not fenced off, again not an issue for us. The fourth bedroom is off the lounge, is glass on two walls with no aircon. This is an excellent property for couples and families with children who can swim and climb stairs.Read more
Loved the pool, house etc Had thought it was walking distance from sa tuna but actually location is further south than pin on advert shows meaning the need to drive to the beach. The region is fantastic...3 weeks next time!Read more
The house is in perfect condition. It is ideal to spend a few days on vacation with your pool and the beach at 15 minutes. Site to leave 3 or 4 cars new materials. They leave towels. The only thing to highlight bad is that the first day we failed a little electricity but they repaired immediately. I would also highlight that there is a lack of detergent for the dishes or to leave a couple of tablets for the dishwasher.Read more
The villa is very pretty. We regret not having seen anyone from the agency to guide us. We were delivering a little to ourselves. We had a pleasant stay.Read more
We went a few couples with our children and we were delighted. Each room has its own bathroom, the barbecue is great and the pool also. Totally recommended, we will return without a doubtRead more
