Found The Glass Cottage by chance, and what a find! It's absolutely beautiful, the views are stunning and the owner, Mike very friendly and helpful. Every little thing has been carefully considered, the cleaning ladies even left homemade cookies everyday! There is a little bar right next door run by Piu and is lovely in the evening, all lit up with little lanterns. Yes, it is a little remote, but that suited us. The beach was almost deserted and very peaceful. It isn't a private beach, but it really feels that way. There are bars/restaurants within walking distance, but a scooter would be useful. We didn't have one and managed fine for our 4 day stay. It really feels like home and we are planning to return.
