Depart the UK from airports such as London Gatwick (LGW), Luton (LTN), Manchester (MAN) and Edinburgh (EDI).

The cottage was delightful. Peaceful, well equipped and in a lovely location. We will come again!

5 of 5
We would highly recommend this cottage. Well equipped and hidden away, so peaceful. You will need a car, but everything you need is a short drive away. Organisation was easy with Gill who is so easy to deal with. The cottage is delightful and well equipped. If you are looking for tranquility and charm, this is the place for you. Thank you Gill. Greg and Claire from Devon

A beautiful house, with gorgeous views and really great location

5 of 5
We stayed as a couple with a 3 year old and it was such an easy holiday. The house is pretty much half way between the beautiful town with all the amenities needed, and the idyllic 2.5km Zaga beach. The town was geared up for tourists without feeling 'touristy'. The house was well equipped, we really appreciated provision of beach towels, bedding and towels were lovely quality, the kitchen knives were sharp, the non stick pans were truly non stick! The place was spotlessly clean. Downsides, the bathrooms were tiny, and running up and down the tightly spiraled staircase every time I remembered something else I needed in the beach bag, wasn't ideal. But these are very minor things in the larger scheme of holidays, and the absolutely picturesque spot of this place, the views, the location, it really was great value and one to come back to. Highly recommended.
