Perfect cottage and location!!
This accommodation is in a perfect location in a small village that boasts a beautiful beach and excellent catering facilities. The accommodation itself is spotlessly clean and is equipped with everything you could possibly need for a holiday by the sea. We had a wonderful time here and enjoyed the luxury afforded by this amazing property. We strongly recommend it to you,
