It is amazing how quickly (sadly) a week can go by when you are reveling in relaxation, beauty, great food and friendly atmosphere. It was the perfect place to destress. The Casa itself is very nicely decorated, very comfortable and has a gorgeous view of the beach and ocean. We have never stayed so close to a beach, now we are spoiled. We loved the open air living area (dining table, couch, hammock, kitchen) with a direct view of the ocean. Very calming. Yet, you can be active too - lots of walks on the beach, swimming (water temperature is perfect), running on the beach, walking into town for dinner. It was a perfect balance. Everything about this vacation was "easy" - the communication before we went, arrangements for transportation from the airport, getting drinks and groceries. Franca has a gift of setting things up for her visitors to de-stress, relax and enjoy the local surroundings. We definitely plan to go back.
