Top vakantie!

Villa Casa AltaVista is een schitterende villa met een nog mooier uitzicht! Het zwembad is prachtig, in combinatie met het uitzicht een belevenis! Daar waar de uitstraling van de villa echt top is zijn een aantal facaliteiten aan vervanging toe. De bedden, het keukengerei en de koelkast en de banken kunnen wel een upgrading gebruiken. Als dit het geval was geweest verdiend de villa de volle 10 punten. Wij hebben de gehele villa gehuurd, met 13 personen. we hebben genoten van ons verblijf.

Casa Altavista

De villa is gezellig ingericht en van alle gemakken voorzien. Uitzicht is fenomenaal. Heerlijk zwembad vanwaar je ook van het uitzicht kunt genieten. Enige minpuntje is de rit naar boven en beneden. Vooral als je niet geheel fit bent.
