Loved the garden area and second kitchen, where we cooked and ate out in the patio/ garden area. Our hosts Marin and Ana were so helpful and kind. Would definately recommend staying here. You would need a hire car. Lovely hidden coves to visit and swim in the sea.

Tatjana and her daughter Andrea couldn't have been nicer. Not suitable for people with mobility issues due to hilly location and steps back from the town.
