"Charming cottage close enough to the town and beaches set in beatiful surroundings"
We loved our stay, the owners, who live in the main residence next door, were charming and very helpful about everything. They clearly enjoy having guests and meeting people. The cottage itself is very nicely decorated and furnished, in a classically traditional style, very much in keeping with the building and surroundings. Everything was in good condition and worked well. The outside space includes a sheltered terrace, (which catches the sun, and is ideal for outside eating) and the run of the extensive and well maintained gardens, so great for children. Its about a 5 minute walk to the beach, which for us was perfect.
