      An oasis indeed! From the welcoming pack: 'Before your arrival, the room has been gently smudged with sage and myrrh...'. You can expect this ambience to last for the duration of your stay. The quiet and serenity of this space is blissful, yet there is ample opportunity to be social, meditate, swim, do birding, stroll in town... Despite its unassuming appearance, the accommodation is comfortable, private, and well taken care of.

      Had a short but enjoyable stay. Stayed in a self catering cottage which was well equipped.

      Great place to relax and just forget about work etc.Bungalow well appointed and conveniently situated so as to enable you to walk all over town instead of using your car. Will definately return again.
