"Wonderful place to stay, couldn't be better."

The studio was everything I expected it to be from the website. Everything has been provided for your comfort. The hosts are very helpful but never intrusive.
The coastal path is right outside your gate, you can see the sea from your armchair. Lots of historical interest in the area.
The local people are very friendly, they like visitors.
One thing to note, the "all round the island" bus doesn't start running until July, so it's a tidy walk up to the local bus stop, but saying that they run every seven minutes, even on Sundays.
I'll definitely be going back again next year.
