From opening the chalet door it was a wow! Everything and more was catered for from kitchen utensils, games, books, linen, cleaning products etc. Felt like home. The interior design complementing the environment perfectly and what a view! We sat out and dined at the table every day. Glorious sunsets. The site perfectly positioned as a base to visit local attractions, with the best beaches and coastal path within minutes. Loved the beach cafe for lazy days on the beach and the pub for evening meals when not wanting to leave the sight has wonderful views with a few games of pool for the kids. Sorry to leave , but happy to return soon.

The painted floor in the living area is a brilliant idea for sweeping . I think the property is lovely and we're looking forward to using it in September ( with sunnier weather if possible) .
