So Disappointed
Building works on both sides made it impossible to enjoy the balconies or garden. The interior of the ?cottage? feels as though it was installed without any thought beyond looking good in pictures - the TV directly faces the main window, so is effectively unusable during daylight hours; we arrived to find blinds not working, basics like hairdryers were unavailable, doors dropped off cupboards the first time we tried to open them? it would be annoying in a cheap chalet, but at these prices it's disgusting. Also, it seems a stretch to describe something as ?pet friendly? when you're threatened with additional charges unless there is ?no evidence of the pet on departure?. It all felt rather mean spirited and inhuman, which made for a fairly miserable experience.

Avoid booking
The property is clearly a business investment. There has been little thought put into the holiday makers needs. For example, there are no hairdryers provided! The house is located in between extensive construction works which are extremely loud and intrusive. It makes it impossible to relax on the balcony and even indoors as the noise is too loud and continues all day long. Would not recommend this property at all, especially given how expensive it is!
