Jessica Cator (Staff)

I was totally blown away by this Villa. It is a stunning family owned property which is lived in by the owners when they are not renting it out. As such you can appreciate the loved and lived in feeling from all the rooms, with their beautiful designs and Dutch antique furniture. This would be a fantastic place for a group of friends or a couple of families to take for a week.
