The perfect location and house.

  • 5 of 5

Six people stayed at this amazing house and enjoyed the daily view from every room in the house of the beautiful ocean. The house has every possible appliance needed, so you could have a BBQ in style or a fine dining experience without leaving the house. The shops are only 10 minute by car and the cheese factory is only five minutes by car. The most relaxing holiday we have every experienced.
