porch at the main entrance with cactus flowers, hedges of fragrant rosemary and a lovely view across the bay. An upper patio with a large wooden table to spend evenings com plete with hammock.Faced with a garden, peaches, figs and other fruit trees. Magic telescope and a terrace with chairs to spend days and days just to enjoy the view.All the furnishings from Sue, is perfect. A perfectly good taste bohemian-hippie at the same time. The cottage is surrounded by woods that offer privacy and an enchanted world, incredible sunsets and a wonderful atmosphere.
Susi and Shaun, the owners are available, helpful and it's easy to become friends.
The island- to uncover all the hidden corners needs 2 weeks but it's realy worth it. Tips... this vacation is not recommended for those who love room service!!! Do not make it if you love the smell of tanning oil and beaches crowded with the bar right up to the water.
For what concerns us the best vacation ever made....
