Everything you need for the beach and more. Our hosts were a pleasure to meet and happy to make our stay a pleasure. Plenty of towels and bedding available and all you need if you want to cook. No english tv but a really good internet service so streaming for us was enough.If you don t have a car then the local mercadonna will deliver for less than a fiver and we found that a great service. Well now you all know so please leave a little room for us. linda and alan ireland
