Beautiful walks, waterfalls and history all around the area. Fabulous holiday destination for young and old. Do as much or as little as you like- we drove to amazing beaches, ruins, war memorials or just walked to the Grande Cascade, truly beautiful. Cottage has lovely gardens and views across the region. Great local restaurants too!
