After initially driving around the site trying to find the chalet, once we found it it was exactly as the photos and a beautiful location. The property was clean and comfortable, and well equipped with utensils. The site was quieter than I expected, which was nice, however, I imagine it must be very busy in peak season. The location was fantastic and the views were amazing, with one of the most amazing beaches on your doorstep.

It was so beautiful and very nicely decorated, cute and cosy and pretty colours. It was right next to the beach and had a bench outside plus multiple doors to use.

Couldn't fault the property as a whole however due to the current conditions we ate in a lot and the table was just a bit unstable to keep putting up at mealtimes. A lamp or maybe softer lighting at night when children are in bed. We did try to use the cooker light but this didn't work. A full size airer would also have been useful. These are all personal preferences and no criticism to the facilities available at all. The property was beautifully decorated and we loved all the local artwork.

C40 was one of the best, of many of the properties we have rented.
