The Factory used to be an old dairy factory, as well as a place where sheeps were shaved. The building has been beautifully restored by new owners Janet & Paul. Their policy is to take only one group of guests at a time, meaning they dedicate all their attention to you. The Factory has been decorated with a lot of taste, and we were surprised to see that we had 3 rooms, a great living room with kitchen, and an outdoor jacuzzi. Great value for money at a time where almost everywhere else, we were assaulted with higher-than-normal rates during the Rugby World Cup. Janet & Paul cooked an amazing breakfast for us. First time I ever had crayfish for breakfast. The sea is very close-by, and the mountains in the background. A great place, highly recommended.
