Beautiful property that simply cannot be topped for value and relaxation. The process from booking to departure was simply and seem-less. The payment was made and all details arrived promptly. We were met by Serge on arrival and he was about most days should a problem arise, which it didn't. The property is perfectly situated for anyone with a car. It has easy access to shops and facilities however is in a location that is peaceful and relaxing. You could spend a week in the garden alone, however there is sights and beaches within easy distance. Will be booking again.
