Sans Souci is a very special place- the rooms are lovely, gorgeous gardens, orchard, and across the road from the sea. I highly recommend it. The mudbrick construction gives the rooms a neutral feel- very calming.

About
Description
The seven-bedroom adobe inn is an artistic blend of Mediterranean and ecological architecture situated on three acres of gardens. We are just a two minute stroll from the safe and sandy Pohara beach, shops and More cafes. The onsite restaurant has a high reputation for its dinners and irresistible desserts using ingredients from its own organic garden. The laid back and casual atmosphere will leave you with a memory of a true holiday. Less
