Well-equipped kitchen, good shower room, very roomy for two, but might be difficult for six. Good views, excellent location with ready access to many places of interest and a good walking area. Friendly and solicitous hosts. Missed having a comfortable area to sit with good light for reading.

The area was beautiful and weather good. We particularly liked the outdoor seating area, view and cinema. My only reservation would be that property advertised as sleeping 14 but a few of the sleeping areas are separated by curtains only so I wouldn't recommend for more than 2 families. However, price very reasonable. Thanks for a lovely stay.
