This four-star self-catering property is an ideal location for up to eight guests sharing four bedrooms. With a private pool, patio and kitchen there is plenty of space. The unique use of wood and structures give the property a modern and contemporary feel. You’ll adore the lounge which features three large windows each with fantastic views.
