A great base for a couple or single person wishing to explore the area. A pleasant beach is just five minutes walk, and there are sunny communal gardens at the back of the apartment block. I stayed there in November and it was very quiet but warm and sunny every day. Strongly recommended.

Spacious, clean, very well equipped kitchen, wonderful conservatory for soaking up the winter heat. Simple, quality furnishings. Air con units in rooms plus gas fired on-demand radiators which we did need to use towards the end of our stay, when it got cooler at night. Large beds with memory foam toppers, plenty of duvets. Weather was much warmer in November than forecast and only occasional wind. Our first drive up, led by the local host, was a bit of an experience as the roads were not what we were used to. After a couple of trips up and down, in daylight and at night, going very slow in places where it was bumpy and taking care on bends, I found it less of a challenge and went in and out of town regularly. Mobile phone/ data connectivity fantastic, with only the occasional dip in signal. Very spacious main bathroom with shower, bath, bidet, loo and basin. Host( available for maintenance issues and initial intro to house) doesn't speak English ( Spanish, German and Russian) but we got by with sign language and pointing! He was amiable and helpful when needed ( fuse had gone and temporary boiler issue). Immediate locale is pleasant for a walk but those with mobility issues might struggle. Some negatives: Small TV with no British channels and no DVD player. A few English books but mostly German. We had our own entertainment so not an issue for us. Shower room plumbing a bit gurgly at times; have to use bins for toilet roll waste, which we got used too but weren't advised about so we weren't sure. Grounds of house are lovely, heavily sloping but no perimeter fencing so our dog was able to wander off if he chose to. There are inch long spines from a shrub somewhere in the grounds, which got caught in his coat. Easy to see and remove however. Swimming pool was too cold to use but I think there are moves afoot to replace the solar panels that have heated it in the past. Must have a car. Overall, I would happily go back and would recommend it if you are looking to be far from the madding crowd.
