peterborough Family (the eldest child is at school)
- The Villa was perfect and well presented. Having had numerous holidays with James Villas they all tend to be well presented, however we found Son Marc 1 had the edge for a number little extras that make a difference and to be honest, has always been a question of mine as to why it hasn't happened before. For example:- We always do a shop as you need to in a villa and some of the things you need to buy are the essentials, most of which you will never use completely and therefor can be left for the next guests. There are also things that were supplied by the owner too which was well received. These included, Washing up liquid and cleaning products, coffee filters, bbq coals, lighters, mosquito plug ins, bin bags, lemon candles of the patio area, clothes washing liquid (not that we used it), dishwasher tablets.
We purchased bbq lighters and dishwasher tablets and only used a few leaving them hopefully for the benefit of the next guests which i think makes sense if these sort of items can be left.
There were also, beach towels, couple of lilos and a number of small footballs etc provided for the pool. Great for the kids and not the norm with the previous villas.
English channels are always hard to get abroad due to the restrictions the good old uk put on them. However, there are two satellite systems for the villa, Main spanish Tv and German satellite with three english channels which can be found on channels 075 bbc world news, 189 and 298 CNBC news. The teenager was keen to point out he found none of them watchable!
The WIFI is excellent.
The villa is owned by Jose who came to clean the pool mid week (great guy). Martin his son, has his mobile on the front door should you need anything during your stay and is fluent in English.
The villa is situated in Sa Pobla which has very little to offer should you wish to explore. however if you need a beach then C'an Picafort is as good as most general beaches only about 8 minute drive and closer than the info in the guides suggest. 13.50 euros per day if you hire two sun beds and shade.
We would definitely recommend the villa
