We spent three nights at this lovely guest house. We were lucky to have been upgraded to a vacant luxury suite with a balcony providing magnificent sea views. Friendly staff gave great advice on local attractions, taking account of our interests. Breakfasts were superb.

The B&B was one of the nicest I've ever stayed in. Not only was the decor beautiful but the staff couldn't have been nicer. They were knowledgeable of the area. Recommendations for dinner were wonderful. The B&B sits high on a hill. The views were breathtaking. I would certainly return.
