The location is lovely but the photograph is very misleading as it is not an isolated location, but is actually part of a street of houses in a housing area.
There was no one to meet us on arrival...the host told us it was because we were arriving late...but it was before 8 pm when we arrived. Also there are no maps of the location and it was really hard to find anywhere to eat...only a supermarket.
Breakfasts are only cereal and bread with cheese...no fruit or anything else.
The bread ran out one morning. The TV in our room never worked all the time we were there...just kept being told that the engineer was coming 'tomorrow'. Also toaster didn't work...replaced on the last day.
The area is very beautiful, close to the sea and a nature reserve near the lighthouse and very quite, but guest house is not well run. It is a long way from town although there is a bus (no 11) a distance away.
