Great location for exploring the local village and a little further afield. Apartment was immaculate with nice décor and kitchen was well equipped. The field is great for a kick around and inside there is a good selection of books, DVDs and games. Look forward to staying again. Paul was easy to deal with and deposit returned promptly.

It really is 50 yards to the beach, yet well enough hidden away to feel insulated from the hustle and bustle. The garden provides an oasis of calm (although we only got to take full advantage once thanks to the British wet weather). The litmus test of 'would we want to live here for longer?' is a wholehearted 'yes'. We couldn't recommend it enough - in fact our neighbours decided to validate our recommendation after visiting us by booking it for next year!
