Our family (two adults and three children) stayed at Le Dune Residence for a week in June 2017.
Despite arriving at midnight, we received a warm welcome from the owner. The apartment was equipped with a fridge, freezer, cooker, television, shower, balcony and air conditioners in both bedrooms.
There was a communal washing machine and brick pizza oven.
The children were delighted with the swimming pool and were regular visitors. The shallow end is about 1.20 metres and the deep end is about 2.00 metres. The pool was open from 9am to 1pm.. and from 4pm until late (closed for 'siesta' from 1pm to 4pm).
The flat, sandy beach was 20 metres across the road from our apartment, hidden by large dunes. The sea water was extremely warm, so there was no problem with the cold.
Every apartment had a parking space and access is controlled by an electric gate key. Having a car is critical. You can't survive without a car.
If you wanted a snack, ice cream or a drink, there is a shop about 400 metres away. The nearest small supermarket is 4km away on Via Kennedy in Santa Maria del Focalla (a small village). The closest major towns are Pozzallo at 8km and Ispica at 10km. Le Dune Residence is visited at 9am every morning by a 'bread and cheese' delivery man. Useful for breakfast.
Overall, we were delighted with our apartment, the swimming pool and proximity to the beach.
