"A wonderful holiday! One to remember :-)"
The house was lovely and spacious, for the five of us (six including the dog!). The area in which it was situated was very private, so not over looked and the surrounding countryside on your door step was beautiful. It was central to all the tourist attractions and good beaches, and we had plenty to do each day without spending a great deal of money to entertain the children. The weather was beautiful and we came back looking like we had been abroad!
The garden was perfect for the dog, with plenty of lovely walks.
