You will enjoy this unique B&B/ self catering French boutique style accommodation! The French theme continues throughout the property - furnishings, food, location and the surrounding area. Suzy is very welcoming and kind offering breakfast at a shared table with the other guests overlooking the pool. You can get to local places easily by local transport - boat or bus and it's quite cheap. The sea with its lovely prom is 10 minutes away. We stayed in the Suite which was roomy, beautifully furnished, modern and practical. We really enjoyed the freedom of being able to come and go as we pleased.
Here are few things to bear in mind!
If you are travelling to the airport, you can get to the property by local transport but it's a bit tricky and long if you're not sure where to go. The taxi was 80 euros which was a bit steep!
The pool is cold and the jucuzzi was not working when we were there but it was the same temperature!
The pool is only able to be used between 10.30am-12 and 3-5 which was a bit annoying.
If you don't speak any French, it might be difficult to communicate with Suzy and the locals to a great extent.
There are some really beautiful vases, pictures and ornaments in the Suite so be really careful that you don't break anything!
There are limited cooking facilities - no rings, pans, cooking items, large plates, bread board, grill. There was a microwave but it couldn't be plugged in!
Don't be put off, though, it's really lovely and Suzy is very keen for you to have a great time!
