It has been a few years since I last been to Holiday Villa. It was a pleasant surprise to see that they have changed their menu. We decided to give their new menu a try and ordered leek/chive pockets, beef noodle soup, noodles with black bean sauce, scallion pancake and corn chicken dumplings and they were amazing! The dishes were definitely better than I have expected. My family & I greatly enjoyed their handmade noodles. We will definitely be coming back here!
Baron Group Malta was the brain child of two young Gozitan entrepreneurs with a passion for architecture and, above all, the island of Gozo. Their dream was to transmit the architectural heritage left by our forefathers for our generation and future ones, plus foreigners from around the world, to enjoy and appreciate such a rich culture which distinguishes our small island. We offer unique accommodations and the possibility to flavour the Gozitan way of living.
"Ten friends and one bambino enjoying the delights of Villa Santoro - what more could we ask for? This amazing place has the real ‘wow’ factor, we’ve really enjoyed relaxing, swimming, drinking gallons of vino, eating like kings, laughing, pool games, siestas in the afternoons, cooking on the barbecue, making the most of the space and relaxing atmosphere. We visited Cisternino and Martina Franca markets, tasted amazing pecorino and bought kilos of fresh local fruit and vegetables.We dined at Bel Italia in Cisternino, tucked into pizzas in Martina Franca, visited vineyards and olive groves and had several walks in the lanes around the villa picking wild blackberries on the way. It has been 'trulli trulli amazing'."
This holiday home in L'Escala was wonderful. We stayed for 4 full weeks and there were 5 of us most of the time. This home is very well maintained and everything worked. The beds are comfortable and we were never short of hot water for showers. The kitchen is compact but very adaquate. We all enjoy cooking, consequently, we cooked most of our own meals and some of them were rather elaborate. The location of this home is rather beautiful. The common area with the swiming pool is very well maintained with a beautiful lawn and nice landscaping. The front and back yards of the home are both equiped with table and chairs which made it easy for us to spread out and do our owns things. The yard facing the pool has a good barbeque which proved handy. This property is also within walking distance of 3 good grocery stores and a very nice wine shop. It is also within walking distance of the beach and several local attractions. In addition it is very close to the main highway access for people with a car wanting to explore more of the area. The owner of the property, Joan Marc, is easy to contact by phone or e-mail and is most helpful. We found he dealt with any little problem we encountered quickly and efficiently. He also provided us with lots of ideas for enjoying the local area. We will be recommending this holiday home in L'Escala to all of our friends and neighbors. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

If you like Shanghai food like XLB, zha jiang mein.... This is the place to go to. It is not on their menu. They have hand-made noodles that are chewy and thick. Their xlb pops in your mouth with delicious soup. I ordered their green onion pancakes as well and it is crispy and chewy and light. I never came here for their regular Chinese food, but I found out they had a Shanghai menu -- it is amazing. Give this place a try, it won't disappoint!

Economically, a Mission Beach or Bay vacation rental is a great idea. You won’t be paying the high rate of hotels and restaurant bills, because these San Diego Beach House Rentals have complete kitchens. Located within walking distance of some attractions and a city bus ride away from most others, a rental car is strictly optional if you stay at one of these Mission Beach Vacation Rentals. Add up the cost for your family to stay in one or more tiny San Diego Hotel rooms, plus the cost to eat all meals at restaurants, and compare that to what you get with one of these San Diego Vacation Rentals.
Eating out is a real pleasure in Majorca but be warned – you may not feel like cooking at the villa once you have sampled what is on offer in the restaurants. The seafood is sublime! Sea bass baked in rock salt is an island classic, and the catch of the day might include squid, lobster and sardines. But you don’t have to rely on what comes out of the sea – there are plenty of meat options, from fillet steak to lamb shank. Try the smaller family-run [more] places that will give you a huge welcome and are happy to advise you on your choice of tapas and other traditional Spanish food such as slow roasted lamb, rabbit with crayfish or sobrassada, a meaty spicy sausage. For your pud try the ensaimada, a very sweet, spiral-shaped pastry dessert. To finish your meal, you could try Hierbas - also known as Herbes - a local liqueur produced using fennel and other herbs and spices. Hierbas tastes of aniseed, similar to Pernod or Ouzo. Then there are the cafes where you can enjoy the great Majorcan desserts and cakes. Calories consumed on holiday don’t count! [less]
