Fantastic place bathed in sunshine for our 4 night stay. Chrystel was a wonderful host and made us feel very welcome, and creates a nice atmosphere for her guests with plenty of laughter and conversation. The place is beautifully furnished and Chrystel's chic approach makes every room classy and quirky.
The breakfast was excellent with the bread , the yoghurt with honey and the fruit selection all setting you up for a great day!
The location is a short walk to the market, shops and the few local restaurant and the rest of the island a short cycle away. Chrystel arranged bikes for our stay which helped work off the fab food around.
Local meals at Moulin and Ocean were very good and the market gives you plenty of choice for an amazing picnic on the beach ( about 15-20 mins walk)
We hope to return to this idyllic location soon.

Thank Tony C
