Very few to say, except that the villa was astonishing and amazing . We had a great extended week end with all my friends. I truely hope that I'll come back with my family in a few years.
"Happy holiday" is well organised if we follow the right instruction (but I didn't ). The team is always helpfull and also reliable.
