A jewel in a wonderful peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Mandarin Cottage met all expectations and more. It has been expertly renovated with all amenties but respecting the noble ancient materials. Very well equipped and clean. Quiet, private with wonderful views from the upper floor terrace. Its location is perfect for a relaxing holiday and yet with very easy access to beaches(10mins), small town(5 mins) and indeed set in small rural village with its own family run restaurant.Highly recommended !
