“The perfect home for your Tuscan experience” Our family very much enjoyed this lovely villa. The home is exactly as described and photographed, and the setting is very picturesque. The rooms are large and beautifully appointed. We enjoyed quality family time--dining together on the covered patio,relaxing poolside after a swim, or watching a little TV in the evenings--but the spaciousness of this home affords privacy and 'alone time', as well. The villa is a short drive into Florence, and there are some good, local restaurants within walking distrance. The owners and caretakers did everything possibly to make us feel at home in their lovely home. We have already recommended this villa to family members, friends and co-workers....and cannot wait to return!
“Superb villa in a quiet and beautiful location” If you want peace and relaxation this is the villa for you. Off the beaten track, away from the tourists. Beach 50m away - feels like your own private beach as no one else uses it.
Villa is really well equppied, free wifi, games room.
Beautiful to sit and watch the sun set on one of many balconies
“Top notch gite.” The house is well located for trips around Pas de Calais. It is well laid out for both personal and communal areas.
The kitchen is more than adequate for any self catering needs and the bedrooms are spacious.
The open fire in the living room is a welcome feature in the cooler months. Very light and airy throughout.
Wifi works well and there is a large DVD library if French TV is not your thing.
Would recommended it to any who is looking for accommodation in Northern France.
“Very welcoming and comfortable stay in Pet-friendly accommodation” The property was beautifully presented. It had everything we needed, and had those little extras that made us all (including our dog) feel really welcome. The location was quiet yet extremely convenient for shops and the railway. The setting is dramatic with mountains all around, and there is so much to do both with Blaenau itself and also in the vicinity of the Town; a great place to stay, we would love to stay again..
“Fantastic villa,Fantastic Hosts,Fantastic location” We had a great time at the fountain villa and found everything we needed for the perfect holiday.We are a family group of 9 adults and found the place to be spacious,clean and well equipped. Communication with Panayiotis was quick ,easy and helpful. At the villa Sandra was very helpful and again very friendly and made sure we had everything we required with out being obtrusive.
location- the village is lovely with a couple of tavernas serving good food and a couple of traditional coffee shops. there is a kiosk and small shop as well as a bakers and take away food place also.we used all of these local businesses and the people are extremely friendly(even met Panayiotis's brother in the coffee shop). the villa is about 15 min from larnaca and the airport and is about 30- 35 min from Ayia Napa and limmasol if you want to go clubbing.we went to a nice beach at carretta beach bar (about 10 min drive )and took to the hills to seek out some vineyards (25 min drive)
all in all we had a fantastic time and have all said we would love to go back so thank you Panayiotis and Sandra for a lovely Holiday and hope to see you again soon
“Absolutely beautiful cottage to spend a holiday!” This cottage is a stunning place to have a holiday.
It had a real home from home feel with everything in the cottage one would need.
Harry the Golden Retriever enjoyed it too having so much space to chase his ball in the garden.
We are responsible dog owners and took on all the rules laid down for a dog to visit this cottage.
If every pet owner treats holiday properties with respect this is what allows owners to accomadate a pet in their holiday lets.
“5 star accomodation, close to ski lift and town” Gorgeous apartment with stunning views. Beautifully decorated with v comfy beds.
5 min walk across the bridge and you are right by the main lift and in the centre of town.
Would highly recommend
“Great apartment centrally in Torquay” We spent one week in Trinity 18 and think it was perfect for us. The layout and location was really good. The only negative was the rather difficult parking conditions on the streets outside. We did of course receive parking permits, but it was not easy to find parking spaces. That was a small drawback. The apartment was well equipped and we enjoyed our stay.
“great villa everything for good holiday” villa in excellent condition clubhouse/restaurant close by, pub/restaurant and chinesetakeway just across road very clean and tidy site perfect for a relaxing holiday but with yarmouth and lowestoft close by if wanted
“FAB” The villa is beautiful and is situated in a small cul-d-sac with a great view of the sea. All four bedrooms are spacious no -one is going to end up with the box room as there isn't one! The kitchen/dining is well equipped with all mod cons. The living-room is large and from here there is a fab coastal view which is enhanced by the telescope.
The property was spotless and very well looked after.
The shop across the road sells everything from newspapers to breakfast - and you can also dine in.
There is a very good restaurant within walking distance and also other restaurants in the area.
We were only there for the weekend and didn't venture very far afield but we love the sea air and walked along the shore and out to the end of the harbor.
The owner met us to give access and show us how to operate heating etc. also gave us loads of info on things to do and places to see/eat.
We were there to celebrate my daughters birthday and to quote her " I don't want to leave" What other recommendation can we give?
“A Fantastic Holiday” We had a fantastic stay at Villa Stephanie, the accommodation is superb and the villa is equipped with every conceivable amenity. The property is situated in an ideal location and we spent the majority of our holiday enjoying the brilliant pool facility and soaking up the views of the surrounding area. We met the owners who were most obliging and helpful, and they are great ambassadors for this property. We would not hesitate to return and would highly recommend this villa to either couples or families.
“Lovely appartment in fantastic location, ideal to see the sites in Barcelona” Situated on a pedestrian street with bars and resturants on the door step and a little supermarket over the road, the apartment is in a fantastic location with everything we needed, and within easy reach of La Ramblas and the Harbour. We were sent information in advance to be able to plan our itinerary for the trip, and there was lots more information available in the appartment.
We purchses a T10 train ticket and got the train and metro to reach the apartment from the airport - which was easy, and the first time we have ever done this - and then used the ticket to use the metro to get around the city to Sagria Familia and the Nou Camp. We also had a day on the open top bus planning where we wanted to stop off in advance and using both the red and green routes– everything was ticked off the list, but we found so much more that we could have done and could have spent longer in some of the places we visited if time had allowed, so we will have to go back!
“Very comfortable, spacious, very well equipped apartment. Had everything we needed and more.” Arrived to a warm welcome, guided around the apartment and shown where everything was. Despite being in the basement of a tenement (shared access via stairs) the apartment is suprisingly bright and airy. The twin bedded and bunk bed rooms look out to a shared garden on the same level at the rear as does the lounge / diner. There is a bathroom, shower room and kitchen that are to the inside of the apartment without windows but some natural light to kitchen via glass bricks between it and dining area. Double and King sized bedrooms to the front are well lit by windows to large gratings at ground level. There is also a small utility / laundry room with washing machine and condensing tumble dryer. The apartment was nicely decorated and very clean throughout and was very well equipped with everything we needed and lots more. Located about 15 minutes downhill walk from Princes St. there seemed to be plenty of buses from the end of the street but we never needed them. About 5 minutes walk to local restaurants and pubs, and 5 minutes the other way to a supermarket, local shop very handy at the end of the street. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the apartment,
“Lovely cottage in a lovely location.” A lovely cottage in a lovely location. Really clean and comfy which is the most important thing to me. It was an ideal location to access the Southern Lakes and really easy to find. Cath was really helpful and the provision of the essentials like Milk, biscuits, tea and coffee were greatly appreciated when we arrived. It wasn't really an issue but the only slight thing would be that there isn't any internet access. As signal can be bad in the Lakes it would be useful to be able to plan days out whilst there.
“Fantastic House and Location” We've always loved coming to Swanage but in the past have stayed out of town. This fantastic location made it so easy to walk to shops,food,beach,everything! The car was hardly touched all weekend!
The decor in the house is fabulous! There were so many extra thoughtful details and comforts that made the weekend relaxing and it is also very well equipped on a practical level. Comfortable seating, bed, pillows, an abundance of towels. Games, books, beach equipment, extensive kitchen equipment and all the things that are often forgotten: dishwaher tabs,cooking oil etc etc.
The biggest hit for the children was the den in the loft. They loved it and disappeared to play whenever we were in the house.
Alison was hugely helpful from first contact right through to checking we'd arrived OK.
It was an absolute pleasure to stay here and we hope to return very soon.
“Lovely weekend away at Kinmel Bay...” Just returned from our weekend stay at Beach Cottage and had a lovely break. We were pleasantly surprised to find the heating on and lights on a timer so that we didn't have to fumble around in the dark for keys and the house was nice and warm. The layout worked really well for us with two of the bedrooms having en-suites and the other three sharing a large bathroom. The whole cottage is really well furnished with the kitchen becoming the hub as always. It's really well equipped, with enough crockery and glasses for the ten of us, washing machine; dishwasher; fridge and separate freezer etc...
A stone's throw from the cottage is a footpath that leads directly to the beach, the kids loved skimming stones in the sea, there's also a viewing platform on the beach which has great views along the coast and inward to the Welsh Hills. Back to the cottage, there is a private garden with large seating area at the rear, which also has a BBQ, I would imagine it would be great in the summer for al fresco dining. The area is residential and there is a caravan park backing on to the boundary of the cottage but I can't see this being a problem, it certainly wasn't for us.
If you are looking for a large good quality rental cottage in North Wales, then Beach Cottage is ideal.
Europe’s diversity is nothing short of mindblowing. It’s a tapestry of different cultures, cuisines, peoples and histories, woven over thousands of years and, consequently, is an utter thrill to explore. From Scandinavia to Spain, you’re sure to find a destination or ten to take your fancy.
With so many countries creating the European patchwork, there are an inspiring number of cities to discover. Classic tourist spots like Rome, London, Paris and Barcelona are brimming with landmarks, while more obscure destinations have just as much to offer: Lyon is heaven for foodies and Budapest a must for history buffs.
As a vast and varied continent, Europe’s landscapes encompass some incredible national parks. Croatia’s Plitvice Lakes are a spectacular complex of waterfalls, peaceful pools and dramatic gorges, while Wild Taiga in Finland offers unique opportunities to see bears, wolverines and other wildlife in their natural habitat.
The Alps, Dolomites, Carpathians, Pyrenees… If you want to get the best view of Europe, head to the very top! From the petite Peak District in England to the majestic Alpine peaks spanning France, Italy, Austria and Switzerland, the hike up and the exquisite views will both take your breath away!

Fantastic Villa Great Location
We are just back from spending two fantastic weeks at Casa Becky. The villa was very secluded and had all that we could ask for as it was very modern and spotless with internet TV with all the latest films and WIFI .
The pool area was very clean and spacious with a nice pool and very comfy sunbeds to relax on .
There are also a number of fantastic restaurants within 5-10 minutes from traditional to the new Indian restaurant which has opened which I would highly recommend.
I would recommend Casa Becky to anyone going to Lanzarote.
We have already booked up for two weeks for 2019. …
Just back from a stay in Canny Corner. What a lovely house and in a great position. The views were amazing from the lounge and upstairs bedroom saw the dolphins twice. House has nearly everything you need for an enjoyable stay. I say nearly as with teenage children the only thing that was missing was internet. For us adults it wasnt an issue as its good to get away from it all. I would definitely recommend Canny Corner and would love to go back sometime in the future. …
House near the sea and beach
Perfect for a big family.
Our third visit to this poroperty and we were not disappointed. Ideal location.and lovely big clean rooms. We will be back. …
Big pool★Sea view★Greek Blue & White Villa
Beautiful Peaceful Villa
We have just returned from a very relaxing & peaceful fortnight at this stunning villa. Lazy days spent around the pool overlooking the views out to sea and the headland in the background. Evenings were spent in Plaka & Almydia for some wonderful restaurants, and easily accessible by car. Car hire is essential.
Just a couple of notes, as mentioned in previous reviews, issues such as there only being one cereal bowl have not been addressed, also the green patio chairs are a little worn and torn in places. All issues that can be easily solved.
Cleaners came half way through our stay, and did an excellent job freshening the villa up. Clean bed linen and towls were provided.
Would highly recommend this to anybody looking for a complete chill out holiday (and who like the odd goat wandering past).
Thanks for a memorable and pleasurable holiday …
