We simply loved our time at Casa de Gilles. Gilles' beautiful and comfortable home lived up to all the fantastic TripAdvisor reviews. We couldn't be happier with the week we spent there. The house is gorgeous - set on the side of a mountain, overlooking lush greenery and the ocean. We enjoyed Maria's tasty breakfast spread every morning - fresh... More

Gilles is a true gentleman with impeccable taste, shown in the attention to detail he gives to everything from the way the house is... More

Every morning I looked forward to a wonderful breakfast prepared by Maria, also the delicious French omelets prepared by Gilles are not to be missed. This place is so comforting, relaxing and rejuvenating I can... More

We spent 4 nights in Casa de Gilles. We absolutely loved the place. It had magnificent views to the mountains and over it to the ocean. From our room - Jennifer - we could step right to the porch and enjoy views to the pool, mountains and ocean. Our room was spacious with our own toilet, bathroom and clerkroom. We... More

My wife and I had a great time at “La Casa de Gilles”. We spent five nights in the privacy of a lovely detached bungalow, with its own porch and beautiful views over the numerous beaches and coves of Las Terranas coast, in La Samana peninsula. The closest (and unspoiled) beach is no more than five minutes away from La... More
