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.

The house is a minute or two from the beach and shops and is in an excellent location for riding or driving to some of the island's best beaches, attractions and shops.
