We had a brilliant holiday at La Porte - everything was clean and exactly as advertised. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed, including a high chair and cot for our 2 year old. The weather was hot and sunny most days so we made full use of the pool which was heated and got sun most of the day - it was absolutely perfect for our toddler as had shallow steps to get in and the temperature was lovely and warm. We enjoyed exploring the local area and would certainly consider coming back for future holidays.
