Summer house can be found just off the main coast road and is surprisingly quiet. Jonathan and his crew are wonderful,full of local knowledge and make you feel at home immediately. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are well decorated and comfortable with all the extras you come to expect- tea and coffee making facilities, bottled water, bathroom accessories... More

Very tranquil and extremely comfortable with high quality finish but with reasonable price. House has a homely feel with fab private collection of art work and antiques. Breakfast is to die for.

The summer house is an amazing house, very nice furnished and decorated as well as a stunning garden. The owners put a lot of love in it and you can feel that, when you stay there. There is a very nice breakfast with fresh fruit every day and (among other warm options) a very good scrambled egg. On departing day... More
