The location is great if you want peace and quiet. It is ± 6km drive from the beach. The owners were friendly. There was a good selection for breakfast. The room was spacious and clean. The garden is beautiful and well kept. There are two malls close by for shopping.

Staying here was a delight... We were met with a friendly welcoming by Claudia and Marc, who couldn't be more accommodating to our needs. Lovely comforty beds, cleanest rooms, and a lovely tranquil pool /sun lounge area. It's the real care and the personal touches shown that make this a special place to stay...Would definately recommend.
