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.

Mrs Hilary T,
