We had a week of self catering and the accommodation is all set up for this. Remember, the nearest mini shop is one mile away, the two restaurants nearby are only open on Sunday and you really need to stock up for your time there.

Beautiful accomodation in the ideal location for a quiet break, the apartment was spacious and well presented, the staff were great, what more can anyone ask. This is a quiet spot but there were lots of island trips available, so no time to get bored. Can't wait to go back again.
