Default Villa Francisca

Hi Guys
We're coming to PP in a few weeks and are staying in Villa Francisca (which we think is next to Laroc). Anybody stayed there and able to let us know what it's like? (I know it's too late to do anything about it now and I'm sure it'll be fab).
Also, will be sea be warm enough in mid May for our little ones (ages 3 & 6) to swim in (and also the grown ups who are a little bit "nesh")?
Can't wait to come back to PP - it was best holiday ever last time!!
Thanks for your time,
xx

Default Sea in May

Sea is definitely ok to swim in by last week of May for adults and kids

Also we were over in april this year ( 1st to 5th ), weather was wonderful and though I didn't get further than a paddle , my teenage daughter and her friend both swam in the sea .......... it was bracing but certainly not a no no ......... so I am sure your 3 and 6 year olds will be fine, and seeing as you are so close to the sea ...... I'm sure you can have some nice Lacao Caliente ready for them when they get out of the sea ............. just buy the chocolate in the plastic bottles from the supermarket and warm it up in the microwave ....... can't beat it to warm you up ...... try it yourself with a shot of brandy !

Thanks for the replies - particularly the tip about Lacao Caliente - we'll definitely try that.

Default Villa Francisca

Well... arrived back in UK on Saturday (I'm depressed already). Just thought I'd post a report on the Villa. It was fantastic! Right on the pinewalk inbetween Los Pescadoes (not sure if I've spelt that right) and Little Italy. We really enjoyed our time there. It was so wonderful to be able to have breakfast on the terrace whilst the children were playing on the beach in front of us. (By the way, apologies to anyone being disturbed by our rather noisy children. Thank goodness the villa next door was empty and the two the other side were derelict!) Actually it's such a shame the two next door were derelict as they look like a perfect opportunity for someone to refurb.

We also spent every evening once the kids were in bed sampling lots of local wine and people watching.

I can highly recommend the Villa. We ate at some great places and I'll post details in the eating out section.

Default Villa Francisca

Hi Cat. Glad you had a good holiday. It sounds as though Villa Francisca was in an idyllic location. I'm sure your two little ones loved it. Look forward to reading you posts. LK

Hi Cat - it sounds great - I know exactly where you are but can't picture the villa. The location sounds perfect - do you have a link to its website maybe?

Thanks,

Lala
