Our family never did 'return' holidays, until we discovered, through Owner's Direct, Porta del Mar. Every year we realise that it just doesn't get better than this. The location is the most beautiful I have ever seen, the owners feel like friends and we all (including a 13 year old and a 16 yr old, both girls) have a fantastic holiday. This year, the owners have improved the site even more, with beautiful decking over the beach, although we are die-hards who prefer to be on the beach (sunbeds provided). There were new cayaks for exploring and the kids jus don't want to come in from the sea- even that behaves itself as it is calm and peaceful in the morning then rough with waves to jump around in in the afternoon. The food gets better and better- George, the new cook is a real find and we loved the fact that he has continued the tradition of cooking using as much as he can from the owner's vegetable garden. There are so many things I could write about, which draw us back every year- thank you Tasos, Pavlina ,Costas ( very much in charge now and very impressive!) and lovely Elina. And George. See you next summer!!
