Although we booked this last minute, we were all very pleased with our choice. The accommodation was lovely, clean and met all our requirements.

The games room was brilliant and we spent a lot of time in there or by the pool, which helped us to unwind after a busy year.

Kim was fantastic. A lovely person and nothing was too much trouble when we asked for help.

There is a great restaurant called Bus Brothers within cycling distance, serving a small but delicious menu. Cycles are provided are in good working order.

Would definitely recommend this property to everyone - but especially if this is your first time renting a property abroad and wanting a positive experience.

Thanks Kim, for letting us stay.
