We had everything we needed and were very comfortable. To be able to see the sea every day was very nice, and we struck lucky with the weather. The location was ideal for us, quiet, but within easy reach of the sites we wished to visit. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday, and one we would not hesitate to repeat.
