Great welcome from Barbara on our arrival, lovely location and sea view from our window with a Juliet balcony. Bed was really comfy I slept like a log. Good size bathroom with a roomy shower and lovely big soft bath sheets. Fridge at the top of the stairs for guests use, great idea. Good breakfast cooked well and not greasy....
