    The rooms are well equiped. Breakfast is super. Problems were being solved. Guests are number one in this guest house. Information is given about possible trips in the surrounding. A good restaurant is in the neighbourhood.

    The villa was so beautifully clean and bright. The ladies who ran a villa de mer, were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast was really good. Very close to good beach. And the swimming pool is lovely.
