Beautiful peaceful Place

  • 5 of 5

This Villa in the Pezula Private Estate is wonderful for relaxing holiday.

The Villa has a nice garden and a large swimming pool with outside barbecue and seating area. It has all the amenities you need for a great holiday.

The Noetzie beach is close by which is a quiet beach that is great for a morning and afternoon swim in the ocean and/or in the river.

The only minor point is that the beds are small, especially for 2 persons.

A fantastic house that is great for entertaining and relaxing. Pezula Private Estate is something special. We were met by the villa manager at the gate to Pezula who kindly showed us the property and how everything worked. The property was clean and presentable. There are a few things that require some maintenance and I found the beds a little uncomfortable. I would certainly recommend the property to friends and family.

Super Haus mit 4 Schlafzimmern und ideal gelegen für Golfer. Sicherheit sehr hoch. Pool sollte meiner Meinung nach mit einer Heizung ausgestattet werde.
