  • We have spent 2 weeks at Torre Nova and enjoyed every day of it. Our appartment had an amazing view out of huge windows over the country side which was like a 3D movie which we could enjoy every day. The appartment was ideal for us and our two girls as each room had its own bathroom and its own big balcony. The old house has been renovated with style and it was a pleasure to come back to it after each excursion. The owners are very friendly and helpfull.
