Enjoy the sound of the birds among the trees

 Great location and comfortable well equipped bach. thanks 

Bach251 absolute beachfront

 Bach 251 is a beautiful jewel. It is perfectly located on the beach front with stunning sea vistas and an easy walk to Raumati shops or the great Rosetta Cafe. It is supremely comfortable and very well equipped. It is very stylishly decorated and all the beds linens and furniture top class. Our wee dog loved the proximity to the beach and we enjoyed many lovely strolls. the teenagers swam despite the colder weather and we all had a very relaxing,memorable family holiday.
