This house is in the most ideal spot. Sitting in the large armchairs looking out the window and watching the sea is so relaxing. Rooms are well furnished and clean. Kitchen well equipped. Plenty of space if you want to be quiet on your own. Garden and large parking area with garden furniture and BBQ.

We loved the location of the house and the facilities were excellent. The view of the cove was picture perfect! We really enjoyed the range of books and games and it was a pleasure to find a holiday home which actually had enough kitchen equipment!
