We had a very nice stay at villa de mer. The room was clean and nicely furnished. Beautiful is the closeness to the sea and beach, but unfortunately the rooms downstairs and even some upstairs do not have sea view. We stayed downstairs next to the door (room 6) and in the mornings it got quiet loud.
Breakfast was good.
A place to recommend.
