    “Absolutely stunning.”

    Amazing unspoiled sea view, underfloor heating, en-suite bathrooms for every bedroom. 10 minutes walk from a beautiful beach and the house is greatly stocked. The pool table was a hit with our two girls. Best stocked and facilitated house we ever stayed in. Our only suggestion is that a patio area with chairs and table would add more value to the holidays.
