6. Modern and spacious property with full kitchen
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. The spacious kitchen is well equipped and includes a microwave and full oven. The horseshoe shape design makes it easy to prepare meals and we adore the archway leading from the kitchen to the rest of the property. Meals can be enjoyed in any of the seating areas but we think that the best spot is on the outdoor patio.

7. Oceanfront views in remote location
This stylish two-roomed cottage enjoys sweeping sea views and offers peace and tranquility. Although there is space for three people we think that this property is actually ideal for a romantic getaway. Meals can be cooked in the kitchen which has both a hob and conventional microwave. If it is sunny, be sure to cook outside with the use of the shared barbecue. You’ll be happy with the view. For this partly remote property, you will need your own car in order to freely enjoy the environment.
