Great property close to beaches and small shops

5 of 5
We had a lovely holiday in this property. There was plenty of space for the two of us, it was well equipped, clean and comfortable. The location is great - peaceful, but we were able to walk to the bakery etc in 10/15 minutes and same for the beach. It was lovely to have wifi in a gite for a change which worked well. We hope to return again someday.
