From booking the place to when we arrived Memory was so nice. She welcomed us. The room was beautiful and what we saw in the pictures it was worth it. The breakfast was great u wake up and look forward to it. The sound of the ocean was calming. We shall be returning in May.

The rooms are well equiped. Breakfast is super. Problems were being solved. Guests are number one in this guest house. Information is given about possible trips in the surrounding. A good restaurant is in the neighbourhood.

The villa was so beautifully clean and bright. The ladies who ran a villa de mer, were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast was really good. Very close to good beach. And the swimming pool is lovely.

Really, everything was excellent! We were made to feel very welcome, both by Memory, the owner, and Magda, her assistant . We only stayed one night as we were travelling, but Villa de Mer provided a perfect stop-over .

We were welcomed and looked after really well. A great place to stay. Plenty of room in the communal areas and a deliscious breakfast. Opposite a lovely beach and near some outstanding restaurants. You can walk to the town where you will find plenty to see and do.
