Lovely cottage very quiet and cosy

5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday in this lovely cottage. It is beautifully appointed with quirky ornaments and paintings everywhere you look. I believe it was the home of one of the members of the family that own the properties Turzain on Owners Direct and has left all the personal touches. This makes it very homely. The kitchen is lovely and well fitted out we cooked some lovely meals there as well as eating out a lot. The previous review is correct that it is up a mountains so it is windy and misty but sitting on the terrace you are below most of the wind but have the full heat of the sun. You will need a light jacket and cardigan especially in the evenings. The garden is lovely with strawberries and limes and lovely flowers. Zain and her daughter Yasmin are always available to help if you have problems. We had a couple of lovely evenings lighting the fire in the sitting room (very romantic) This is a holiday we will remember. ALWAYS HIRE A SMALL CAR VERY NARROW ROADS AND PARKING! Thank you Zain and family

Very peaceful place to spend some quality time. Slightly dated but thats the whole point of this place. Slightly let down by the lack of wifi in the apartment. Very clean and tidy everywhere. Will certainly stay again. Raul
