The Valley is a 5* rated pet friendly gated development which boasts a multitude of leisure facilities including heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis and squash courts, fitness suite, children's play area, seasonal bar and restaurant.
The attractive two bedroom design is split over three floors with very clever use of the space on offer. The highlight is the fabulous living room, that opens on to the south facing sun terrace with a few stairs up to a galleried kitchen/diner that opens on to a generous balcony and enjoys far reaching views. There is a cloakroom, en-suite shower room to the master bedroom, bathroom and utility room. Even the busiest holiday maker should find it very comfortable and homely.
