This old stable is beautifully refurbished and has a cool patio under the vines. The area around is mainly farmed and perfect if you would like to stay close to the beach.

The house consist of 2 bedrooms upstairs (both with double beds).
Downstairs you have the sitting room with a sofa that can be used as a sofa bed for 2 people. There is a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and a laundry area. We also have a baby cot available if needed.

We encourage all our guests to taste the local produce from our lands when in season. Potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, herbs and of course grapes!

If you are visiting us in the time of picking the grapes, you are welcome to take part in picking or stamping!

You will need a car when staying in the Stable. There is no real buss connection and even though it is 3 minutes drive...

Believe me, you don't want to leave this house! We've just returned from a super holiday in The Stable.

We,ve been here three times and always had a great time. A beautiful island, and the stable has e very thing you need for self catering. All the locals are very friendly, and you are away from the hustle and bustle of towns. Would strongly recommend this house. John and daisy Hemings. more
