  • Lovely homely bach a few steps from the beach

    Lovely homely bach a few steps from the beach. We loved the location and the lived-in feel of the house. It wasn't too precious and we felt very comfortable there - spreading out as if it were our own home. On arrival we were greeted with wine and treats and all the staples needed to start out the holiday. It was perfect!

    We've been coming back here for years (eight? ten?) and it is the most relaxing and happy holiday we could imagine. Comfy beds, beautifully equipped kitchen, so close to the beach, beautiful shaded - and sunny - patio. Recommended to everyone

  • Great Bach

    Great Bach. Lived up to expectations and more. Perfect location for families and we were really well provided for. 3 minites walk to the beach. The nibbles and wine on arrival were gratefully received after a long journey. Will most certainly stay again. Thank you.
