"Little Haven"

Having travelled for a couple of weeks what a great way to spend our last week chill out is the word.Les espioles was everything that we wanted large 4 bedroomed cottage with every amenity we could wish for English TV for our grandaughter aged 3, DVD for the one rainy day we experienced. The little extra's like dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, bin bags etc were something we had never had in other properties we previously stayed in. The garden and pool area was absolutely great lots of sun beds and shade if you needed it, our grandaughter summed it up with the words "can we stop here for ever and ever" I only wish we could.......Beverely and David were so helpful and pleasant and we hope to be back there next year,
