GREAT ASSET!! - Matthew, our optional, in house chef, who offers a range of very affordable dining options at Acabanes. Large groups love having this option.
This luxury villa has been designed and equipped for outdoor living, with a large (11x5m) superb heated salt water pool with retractable cover, which means it can be used as an indoor/outdoor pool.
We cater for all sizes of parties and can accommodate both the very young; the elderly; or those with limited mobility/wheel chair users.
Extensive equipment is provided complimentary for infants and young children. There is no need to bring any of your babies or childrens equipment with you which means you have the option of flying to Bergerac or Bordeaux if you prefer.
