“Just back from a week staying at the Riviera Retreat with the family (11 adults and 7 kids). Wow, it was brilliant. Such a large, spacious house, that was very clean and had everything we needed, from cork screws to tumble dryers. Games room was welcomed by all, and the WiFi was fast enough for the kids to stay ‘connected’ .

Location was perfect, with just a short walk to Torre Abbey and the sea front.
We all had an amazing time, and would love to return.”
