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.

Room Tip: Room 1 is excellent with view of the sea.

I highly recommend the guest house. My family had a wonderful time and a dream holiday. We took two rooms and enjoyed our stay throughout the vacation. We are looking to book again and enjoy the experience

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 .

Not our first time at Villa de Mer and we will return again. This is a great place to stay with the room of very high quality and a superb breakfast. There are two excellent eating places within a very short car journey, one the highlander is a pub and restaurant with good beer and food, the other an excellent restaurant on the road into town. The beach is just the other side of the sand dunes in front of the Villa and when walking on this it is like a desert island as likely you will be on your own for some or all of the time. The attention to detail is the hallmark of this accommodation. The town is less than a 5 minute drive and has a range of eateries available. The golf course is 5 minutes around the corner and while sometimes a bit breezy is a very nice course to play.
