The flat was exactly as described, everything worked, and it met our expectations in all respects. The location is very convenient for the town centre and seafront, and also for the excellent Continente supermarket in the other direction (about 500 meters).

The cottage is well equipped with everything you need - even the wi-if works remarkably well despite the remote location. The local area has many interesting towns and villages to visit with great roads (we were on a motorbike so important to us!) Mike and Maria are great hosts, just the right balance of helpful and unintrusive. Thanks for the lift to the local restaurant and for posting back the cable we left behind. Highly recommend this cottage especially if you are looking to get away from it all. Thanks, April and Ty
