“There's nothing nicer than feeling like you're the only ones there. This countryside retreat tricks you into thinking you own a private villa - with a swimming pool, a restaurant, a spa, very discreet staff and a speed boat to take you there. 6 simple but elegant double rooms and 2 suites with huge balconies and fourposter beds. The sophisticated Beach House has a less smart twin property. The Farm House, similar in style, is for those who haven't booked in time. It has the same facilities, minus two suites, but with a more informal atmosphere. Perhaps, the ideal spot for families or a group of couples. But the Beach House is our first choice for a secluded and romantic retreat. ”
