It is very beautiful. Not many people, so peace and quiet. Good place to relax and swimming. You can rent an umbrella for about 6 euro for a whole day.

Very well cooked delicious food - a family run restaurant in idyllic surroundings. We ate there three times and thoroughly enjoyed the wide range of delicious local food (and wine!) as well as great service. Lovely people.
