A wonderful day out, only 35 minute drive! Historic village with artisan shops and good restaurants.
Caroline will give you a private tour as well as an enjoyable tasting, with children extremely welcome also with toys available.
This property was truly marvellous. Travelling with young children can be difficult, you never pack as much as you need. Staying at Acabanes you needn't worry. They simply thought of everything.
Adults were also well catered for , with comfortable beds and lovely baths and plenty of space if sharing with friends!
The location couldn’t be better , reasonably close to the airport, making that post flight journey effortless.
The house was in a very peaceful location with a delightful plum tree ripe for picking!
I highly recommend this house, the attention to detail is second to none. Tracey has provided a wonderful setting for a magical family holiday, it was a pleasure to stay and oh so difficult to
We now must plan a return!!
That’s so wonderful that you loved your holiday at Acabanes and yes please do return very soon!
Cannot fault this Luxury Villa it is the best equipped accommodation I have ever stayed in. there are toys for children, table tennis, football, loads of bikes and helmetsfor adults and kids, pool table, sauna and gym you name it it is there.
Everything you will ever need in the kitchen with more plates, glasses and cutlery than you could ever need.
The rooms are all very nicely decorated and the beds and linen first class. All the bathrooms are great with loads of hot water.
The pool is heated and large with ample shade and sunbeds.
The outside covered terrace seats 12 or more for alfresco dining and the same inside if needed.
We we were also recommended a fantastic chef by Tracey, Matthew from Lovage & Pumpernickel who was able to cater for us on some nights and prepare food on others and he is highly recommended as well.
What a super review Roger, thank you very much and we couldn't have asked for nicer guests - please do return soon!
Tracey and The Team
Acabanes is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. We went in June as a family of thirteen and found all our needs catered for to perfection. Tracey, the property owner has provided everything anyone could require for a perfect holiday.
From arriving to find our shopping delivered until leaving to meet the cleaning staff, everyone involved with the holiday gave their utmost to ensure we were completely satisfied.
Thank you for your very kind words and all The Team enjoyed meeting you and your family
Thank you to Tracey and the team. We have just returned from Acabanes having had a most wonderful, relaxing and peaceful fortnight. We loved everything about this house. It was spotlessly clean on arrival and had everything we could have wished for. We made great use of the pool and the addition of the brilliant pool cover, which was simple to use, gave us peace of mind that once covered the children were safe. The children, ranging in age from 3 -12, had everything they could have wanted. We hardly saw them as they moved from one activity to another! They loved the trampoline and climbing area and the general freedom of the very safe and secure garden. We all enjoyed the space to play rounders and cricket. We cooked for ourselves most nights, but this was made simple as the kitchen was so well equipped. The kitchen gadgets including rice cooker all really helped with a large group. The ice machine helped the G&Ts to be perfect, the wine fridges (including one to store red wine at the perfect temperature), one fridge for food and one for drinks plus freezers all made our time perfect. The attention to detail really made it for us. We made use of the grocery ordering service provided by Tracey and were delighted when we arrived that this was already put away and ready for us...a really hassle free way to start the holiday. We really cannot praise the house and service enough. We will be back! Thank you.
