We had a lovely stay at Saxon Villa. This is a really beautiful Victorian house, tastefully decorated, with a calm and relaxing atmosphere. The room was very comfortable with a view of the sea in the distance. The attention to detail was outstanding, even with fresh milk provided for tea in our room as a very welcome facility. Our hosts... More
