.Ted was not disappointed when we arrived at Villa Finistere to find the house had all of the little touches. a vase of fresh flowers in the living room. a bowl of fresh fruit on the dining room table .fresh bread.a platter of assorted cheeses.a roasted chicken . We decided to wait to eat and put on our suits and walk across the street to the Isle de France and swim in the ocean. Perfect. this villa has everything .the privacy and comfort of home plus easy access to one of the most delightful beach hotels on the island.
