The owners are probably the sweetest and the most kind people you will ever meet, who are also happy to help if needed. There was plenty to do in the nearby cities or ancient villages and we especially enjoyed Torre Salsa beach which is only 30 minutes drive away. Ribera (nearest town) offers plenty of nice restaurants and supermarkets shall you decide to stay in and cook food. If you going to stay here please do ensure you hire a car as it's very remote. Over all we had lovely time in here and are happy to come back any time.

The challenge in locating it is rewarded by uninterrupted views of the ocean, charming countryside and peace and quiet that is perfect for a relaxing and get away from it all experience. The hospitality shown by Joseph and his lovely family was charming, the opportunity to take advantage of a boat trip which was offered, shouldn't be refused. As rugged as the walk up and down to the beach is, the delightful cove and sandy beach that you can reach is wonderful. It's not often we return to the same place twice for a holiday but we may well make an exception here!
