It is the second time we have stayed at Olivia House in the last two months and each time we found it to be the perfect little retreat for my girlfriend and I away from the hustle and bustle. The hosts Annette and Lynne were wonderful, so accommodating, they made our stay special each time. In the morning they will also serve you the perfect full English breakfast using the "best ingredients" and I am very fussy! I am also an interior designer and I loved the character of each room, it is very cosy, elegant, lots of character with the communal dining room, lounge and kitchen where you are able to play chess or simply have a few Grey Goose or coffee before leaving for dinner.
Our first stay was in The French Room, where after dining at a local restaurant with a few glasses of vino it was back to the hotel for a night cap and a chat with our host then retired to our room with a bottle of champagne and chocolates, ran a big bubble bath which is situated within the room and watched a few DVD's provided by the hotel!
Our second stay was in The Balcony Room which boasts the largest bed i've ever seen or slept in, so comfortable! The hosts were also more than happy, as one of our couples is a chef (if we didn't make too much of a mess of course!) for us to purchase some local scallops, fish and prepare a beautiful dinner which we had in the dining room along with a few bottles of wine, Annette and a friend joined us later on, it was a fabulous evening of food, conversation and laughter! The following morning after breakfast, a coffee and newspaper reading session on the balcony, Lily and I took a walk along the beach for a little fresh air and watched the waves crashing on the rocks, beautiful! (Picture attached).
I would urge anyone who was looking for a relaxing weekend away to pay this quaint establishment a visit! I would also like to thank you guys once again for making our stay a very special one and look forward to seeing you again very soon x
