Recent villa, of pink colour, well fitted out, in 5 meters of the beach. Big neatness, beautiful parquets and sober and fresh decoration. The least expensive rooms are at the first floor. Bathroom and and w.-c. outbuildings for quite safe for 2 rooms which possess an internal shower. Rather friendly atmosphere around the small lounge (music, satellite TV) or on the terrace in the 1st, where from we have a magnificent sight. Services of laundry, international telephone, a small shop, transfers to Diego, some books at arrangement (and even the "Routard"!). Also a restaurant with good French specialities (steaklet of duck, chicken basquaise, cheeses).

Small shop in the entrance where we can find one or two surprises. Good reception. Transfers assured from the airport. Rent 4x4.
