A fantastic villa with all you need for a great holiday – great quiet location and not overlooked. Will definitely book again
Excellent villa in a quiet, rural area within a short walk of Alcaufar amenities and beach. I couldn’t recommend this place highly enough
The villa was perfect for our needs; quiet, spacious, and well designed for a family holiday. We considered ourselves lucky to have chosen, with your help, a location far from the madding crowds and yet convenient for beaches and Mao. We were very happy there
Alcaufar is a really pretty village with a lovely little beach, shallow waters and rocks on which to climb or sunbathe. It is extremely child friendly: the bay is very shallow and there are many flat rocks and rock pools to explore. It is a village almost untouched by mass tourism. The small hotel adjacent to the beach is a nice shady spot in which to relax and have a drink or lunch. There is also an excellent restaurant, Piccolo Mundo, which offers great sea views and an enticing menu, and there is a small local shop in the village. The bustling resort of S’Algar is a short walk away across the cliffs
