Altough the villa is based in the countryside it was perfect for us both as we were looking for a get away from it all break.The villa was clean and tidy and had all the facilities we needed.It also had its own pool which in september was a bit chiily till you got aclimatised but was great.Altough in the countryside the nearest large town altinkum is only 15 mins drive away and provided plenty of places to eat out and things to do.

"Peaceful with secluded garden, a great getaway"
Villa is in a nice estate with just a short journey to the nearest town. If you want to get out and about a car is essential but if you are happy relaxing around the pool there is a shop and restaurant on site. The villa is very comfortably furnished and has everything you require right down to hair dryers in every room! The garden has lovely flowering bushes all round giving total privacy. The pool was kept sparkling clean and was a huge hit, even in the evenings after we had used the built in bar b que in the gazeebo to make supper.
