De ligging is heel mooi alhoewel de weg ernaartoe misschien iets beter beschreven kon zijn. Eens je het weet is het geen probleem meer. Het sanitair is hier en daar wel wat aan vernieuwing toe. De eigenaars zijn zijn héél vriendelijk en steeds bereid om hulp te bieden en uitleg te geven over de omgeving. Zeer zeker een aanrader voor mensen die van rust en natuur houden. We hadden een fantastische tijd met de hele familie.

A really good location in a quiet position overlooking the sea. The views were far better than expected and the owners were friendly.
