It´s a nice setting close to the sea overlooking the denish coast. The castle is rather small, has a nice gallery, a coffe shop and restaurant. We went for a walk in the park, it´s known for hundreds of rododendron in various colours. Since the...More

Sorry for the late reply it's about 10 minutes bus ride. I think it will be pretty far to walk between.
