Reluctantly just returned home from this wonderful, idyllic house in one of the most beautiful, scenic areas we have visited. Our hosts were spot on; helpful and very friendly. The views from the house are stunning and the area so peaceful and relaxing. Well worth a visit. We will definitely be returning.

This is a modern apartment added in the last 10 years and so it is not in need of upgrading. We have decided to treat this apartment separately from the rest of the period house, and use bleach based products for cleaning, especially for the grout in the shower. The oven has been replaced as our cleaner advised. Unfortunately spiders...

Hill House is in a wonderful location overlooking the sea. It sits above other houses so you get a really good view of the natural surroundings. It is quiet and tranquil and a great place for a quiet break / retreat. The house is clean and has a warm welcoming feel and the host makes you feel immediately relaxed and...

This place is just wonderful. I went on a transforming retreat over Christmas....without it being super holy or airy fairy. The house itself is a beautiful old villa and if you get one of the rooms at the front the views over the bay are just incredible. Watching the sun rise on Christmas morning was enough to almost turn me...

I was looking for a place to be in sort of retreat with my daughter, as in an un’guided’ retreat, somewhere calm and beautiful and close to nature, not too isolated, offering company if sought and privacy for reflection when needed. An internet search...
