Stayed with family for a winter holiday at La Residence. We had one of the three villas and had everything we needed to hand.

There is a steep alley leading the visitor from the main road to La Residence, which gives it a privileged elevated position from the sea level and... More

“I don't know if the fact that we had an upper floor meant we only had a few ants (which are everywhere on this island!!) and no other bugs. Room 5 (upstairs in the middle) was very quiet.”
