Perfect location only a 4min walk to the beach, everything in the house was very well thought of we didn't need anything. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.

You wouldn't know dogs are allowed to stay. Arriving on site, it looks a bit dated and worn but the chalet is absolutely wonderful and we had a great time.
