House and garden immaculate, modern and welcoming. Few minutes walk to beach, shops and few bars and restaurants. Town quiet during week although vibrant at weekends. Dominique was a perfect host. See you next year, thank you

Catherine has our greatest thanks for being on hand when we needed her. As Belinda' housekeeper she is a gem
