We had a quick winter weekend away here in May and it was great. Very relaxed, informal and the food was fantastic. We had the place to ourselves and the hosts were perfectly available but discreet, leaving us to feel relaxed and enjoy the place.
I'd love to go back in summer as even in winter we had a beautiful golden beach and the water is crystal clear.
Dinner was a highlight, really very good. The sweet parsnip and vanilla sauce especially. This isnt 'resort food'. The family run team are genuine chefs. Highly recommended and a real foody treat.
The only criticism - no sky in the room when it said it was, but that's a minor - everything else was very good, very relaxed and these guys run a great place.
