a great location less than 500 metres from the beach in a very quiet and safe residential surrounding. The host JP went out of his way to provide options and ideas for our stay including two great restaurants!

My wife and I had a very enjoyable and relaxed weekend. Amanda and Walter were good to us and the breakfast was excellent. The walk down to the beach was not too far and once there the view and atmosphere was lovely.
