Very nice setting, great for the kids, nice pool and green ground. Neus is great, very helpful with travel advice and helping with all our needs. We stayed at the 5 room apt. Big and comfortable. Road is somewhat noisy at night. Definitely recommend with small kids.

These apartments are well located, with areas for children to play, gardens, a little swimning-pool, ... but the apartments are standar equiped, not very clean and in ours with many flies. The solution was the use of sprays... the gardens were out of control with tall grass. The impression was that there was very few people working and although the... More
