A very nicely situated cottage in an unspoilt area

5 of 5
The cottage is well equipped, stylish and supplied with everything needed to get your holiday started, we were left a bottle of wine and cider, a nice touch, there are supplies of all the basics including washing up liquid, a few dishwasher tabs, basic toiletries and things like a proper coffee machine with filter papers, lots of the things which you find often you have to go out and buy the day you arrive with many rentals. The cottage was warm and we used the log fire in the evenings when it was colder although there are electric radiator heaters for convenience. the TV worked and you could get English channels. It is not far from some splendid beaches and the pizzeria in the village does splendid pizzas and if you want to splash out there is a high class restaurant there also and 'the Oasis' at the beach is very good and patronised by the locals, aim to eat after 7;30 which seems to be the time the locals start.

so amazing

5 of 5
This apartment has to be experienced to be believed. Most of the time we thought we were on a cruise liner with the view,and the sound of the sea was so soothing. The rooms were exceptional and the owners so nice and kind. There were flowers , Champagne and a tin of biscuits waiting for us. We did not want to go anywhere to visit because it was so amazing. Will be back in 2018 hopefully
