Bijoux cottage with a beautiful garden. Well equipped and comfortable. Have very much enjoyed staying here – thank you!

Mr S

A beautiful property in a perfect location. Minutes from the beach, shops & restaurants and yet a really quiet & tranquil place where you can relax & recharge. It was fantastic. Everything about it was perfect for us. Little things like handwash, salt, pepper, soap powder & of course, milk, biscuits, tea & coffee are very thoughtful and make for a perfect stay. Thanks.


Thank you for a lovely week in your cosy cottage. The cottage has everything we needed and you’ve carefully planned everything plus it was all very clean on arrival – well done

Efficient and friendly staff. Nice to talk to a real person !! Cottage in a great location for access to town etc, quiet with no traffic noise at all.
