We currently live in Wilmington, DE and bought this lovely villa in 2010.
We rented a vacation villa in Village des Pins in 2009 and loved it so much that we purchased our own villa a year later. Since then we have enjoyed many wonderful family vacations in the villa.
The setting of the villas in Village des Pins is truly unique. The community feels secluded, yet so conveniently located to many amenities and tourist attractions.
