A graceful and relaxing, quality orientated choice with extensive, lush gardens and a pleasant refined atmosphere throughout.

An old world charm prevails through most of the communal areas and the property attracts a wide range of international guests who appreciate the tranquillity of the gardens and communal areas, providing a welcome contrast to some of the more modern coastal options.



Palatial looking open V-shaped building that has been tastefully restored after spending its earlier days as a traditional landowner’s farmhouse, dating back to 1880.

A central section, with tall glass windows has a neatly pitched gable and the rooms have small metal-railed balconettes and wide shutters. Conservatory style extension at the front adds a little modern style and character.
