Self Catering

Minutes from golden sandy beaches and with everything you need within walking distance, this is a quintessential seaside townhouse, ideal for families or for couples looking for a little extra space. With an upside-down approach, the rooms are downstairs while the open living area is on the first floor, to get the most light.  The decor is just fabulous: think of modern beach style and surprisingly spacious as well. This exceptional homestay is the perfect family base.
