The cottage was ideal for that, it was private, quiet and with magnificent views over the town and the sea beyond. The weather was very warm so we didn't want to do too much and the cottage was perfect for us. It was well equipped, we had all we needed.

Well maintained, very clean and wee managed. Lots of different places to sit and relax. Pool beautiful with far reaching views. Parasols a big plus point providing much needed shade. Would highly recommend!
