Great, relaxing place
We felt at home in the house immediately. It was clean and everything was ready for us, coffee, soap, towels. The house is well equipped and the owner did everything to make us feel comfortable. The garden is very nice and we enjoyed breakfast in the garden place and played tabletop football a lot. It does not get as hot as down the sea and we slept very well in the quiet area. We walked to the beach twice every day, it's 10 minutes downstairs, 15 minutes upstairs. We found the house exactly as it was described with great bathrooms and showers. After a week in the house we felt very relaxed. We are looking forward to being back.
