Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Tranquil and Private The property (tennis court) is absolutely wonderful, tranquil and private. The only minor issue affecting comfort rating - dining area is very small but in fine weather the outside balcony is great, Everything was very clean. A lovely "couples retreat"
