We have never had such a relaxing holiday. Quirky spacious spotlessly clean, up side down property. Fantastic location with manicured garden and , its own well stocked fishing lake. The onsite owners, were very pleasant and helpful but not intrusive. We want this property to be our secret retreat so, don't tell anyone. Not for the physically impairRead moreed due to the very steep steps at the entrance. Hide

Great value for money perfect location for the beach and tourist resorts. The owners are on site and very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend and would visit again.
