    This is an exceptional and a very special place on the edge of Atlantic Ocean bay. What is special about this place? The answer is simple – everything! The sand is ideal for building beautiful castles by children and their parents. The air is so stunning so one can materially feel it. We were sleeping for more than 9 hours and could not get up as if we took sleeping drugs. The house has been restored by current owners with a great love and taste. Maintaining the traditional feel with a slight oriental touch in design it has all contemporary features for the comfort living. One can’t forget the warmth of the sun sitting on the dinner table on the open terrace. The garden, where you can not only enjoy the beauty of grass and trees, but can gather fresh vegetables for your lunch. The swimming pool with its gentle natural water has surprised all of us. Its moisturizing effect is easily compared with the best French body cream. Food – this is something what would be difficult to describe as none of the adjectives exist to express it. Maybe just one – simply stunning French cuisine. We had a pleasure of being taking care by three chefs and all of them are just unforgettable. And last but not least the villa team – very friendly, helpful, ready to assist at all times. Of course the pearl of the team is its manager without whom our stay could not be as memorable as it turned out. This is a place where you want to come again and again! Thank you all!
