Been back for two weeks and still sorry we left. Dueqesa is a beautiful resort and the Vivione 111 the most excellent accommodation. The Yacht has everything you need for a relaxing stay. The sun deck was great for sunbathing but there is plenty of shade on the Yacht too. Particularly liked the evening sun and sitting with a drink watching the world go by. The Owners Garry and Dee were loverly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The Marina is gorgeous with an excellent choice of restaurants and bars. Really enjoyable holiday.
The most peaceful and relaxing holiday ever. The yacht is superb. Large, spacious with plenty of storage. The sun is on the sun deck till late evening, but plenty of shade if wanted. The Port has numerous restaurants and bars. Short stroll to Sabinillas along the promenade. The owners Denise and Garry are absolutely wonderful. They can't do enough for you. Will definitely be going again. Loved it.
We stayed on the Vivione 111 with our two children aged 7 and 5 in June. Gary and Denise, the owners, are a really lovely couple and were excellent hosts. We didn't bother with a car on this trip. They picked us up with our luggage and bought us to the marina and helped us onboard! The boat is moored in a great location a short walk to the restaurants in marina de la Duquesa and a short walk to the fishing village of Sabinillas. The generous welcome pack was a very nice touch. Staying on the yacht was a fabulous experience and the children really enjoyed it. They loved their cabins and slept soundly! The yacht is very well equipped and I would highly recommend it for a family holiday! We look forward to returning to stay on the Vivione 111!
Fantastic Holiday, Great Location, Wonderful Hosts
We have had 2 fantastic 2 week holidays aboard the lovely Vivione111 they were the most relaxing holidays we have ever had. We have enjoyed them that much we are returning yet again this year.
Where to start, the owners Garry and Dee are two of the loveliest people you could wish to meet there is nothing to much trouble for them they make you feel very welcome and help your stay go smoothly. The yacht is moored in a great spot in the Marina and has loads of charm and is equipped with everything you could need for your stay.
We were warmly welcomed by Garry and Dee on our arrival in port and shown aboard Vivione111 .There was a welcome pack aboard with a few of your basic essentials to get you started, the cold beers were much appreciated a real plus if you arrive mid day when the sun is at its highest.
The marina itself has numerous bars and restaurants with a wide variety to suit all tastes. There is also an English Butchers for all your fresh meat and Tim’s Fish & Chip Shop for a touch of home.
Money can be exchanged at the business centre they will also help with any excursions you might like to take. We would recommend a visit to Rhonda where there is lots to see and explore.
We would also advise making the short trip to Gibraltar which is easily reached using the local bus service should you not have the use of a car.
We would normally start our days with a relaxing breakfast on the rear deck listening to music before moving to the upper deck where we would relax and enjoy the superb location and privacy while enjoying the opportunity to read our books.
You can then break up the day with relaxing walks along the promenade to Castillo or Sabinillas or take up the chance to use the bicycles which are free to use. A gentle stroll will work up an appetite and a thirst with both easily satisfied by the numerous bars.
Castillo is charming little village a few minutes’ walk away where we found a wonderful little restaurant called ‘Meson Del Castillo ‘ this is a must try we are sure you will not be disappointed.
The promenade also takes you in the opposite direction to Sabinillas which is a little further to walk but again well worth a visit, while we were on holiday last year they were celebrating the Luna Festival. It is customary to wear white and release balloons at 12 O’clock, a lovely site to see and good fun for the kids. A stage was set up on the beach and live music played through the night, really good fun but it is very crowded during the Luna Festival and probably attended by half of Spain.
Vivione111 has all you will need for a relaxing holiday in a great location with a short walk to the numerous bars and restaurants. It is also a great base from which to explore other coastal resorts.
You can do as much as you like or as little as you like with the assurance Garry and Dee are there to help and make your stay as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible.
See you again soon

Spent 1 week on Vivione 111 in September 14th -21st.
This was our second visit, just love it here, the boat is amazing and in a fantastic position on the Marina. Everything within walking distance.
It's so relaxing, Garry & Denise, who own Vivione are just wonderful and make you feel very welcome.
The Champagne & Strawberries (a gift for our Silver Wedding Anniversary) was a really lovely gesture.
Thank you, we will definitely be back next year.
