Ever since I've moved to Europe I always searched for places that remind me of home, and this place ticks all the right boxes!
I've really enjoyed staying at this site in August. I love the beach, and I found that this place is shaped in a very interesting way, because the beach is nearly surrounding the whole site! So it's right there for everyone to experience. You have to see it for yourself to appreciate what I mean :)
On my arrival I was welcomed by Mortimer the owner, whom is extremely friendly, charming and funny (a great story teller haha)!! He made me feel very welcome, cause he's easy to speak to and very helpful for anything you need or places to visit in the area.
I found the site very quiet at night, and slept like a baby with the sounds of the ocean and the nice breeze. It's sooo relaxing in the morning when you wake up to the beautiful view in front on you and the sounds of the birds! Seriously it is exactly how it is advertised on the site.
I also found all the facilities good with a nice big kitchen, although I didn't actually use them since I went in a caravan, but I'm sure any campers will really appreciate and enjoy them. There is also a cool music room with open fire, for anyone to use, where you can enjoy a good evening's entertainment. If you're a musician you are the entertainment LOL
I would recommend this site to everyone cause it is well worth a visit and I'll guarantee that you won't be disappointed. I work in a city, so if you are like me and want to escape and crave peace and quiet, this is just the place for you!!
p.s. it also has palm trees, just like home! :D
