Property owner and organisers were very welcoming and made us feel at home away from home! Giving plenty of information for the bus routes, trains and even the ferry! It's a great little place to stay for a group of friends or a small family, very close to the port, supermarkets and small bakeries :) It's been a pleasure staying with you and would definitely stay here in the future! Many thanks

Close to the sea for that cool down swim and chill with a short walk to the shops and a great little cafe bar. The property itself was spot on very comfortable and homely, lovely garden and patio area with a great view ,very quiet except for the seagulls and local dog. The host were brill , even helped carry our cases up the steep hill to the property. Great place Great people....
