It epitomises home from home, whereby every requirement is catered for. The position of the property is superb with lovely walks along the coastline and secluded beaches tucked away. We went for four days to 'chill out' , exploring everywhere on foot, yet any longer - especially with young children - and a car would be beneficial. The customer service from start to completion was excellent. It was completely 'stress less' which meant we could relax from the minute the holiday was booked.
