Going on holiday and visiting some of the best beaches in Europe really makes for a fantastic time. The great thing is that you can even find some holiday villas and cottages nearby, so getting plenty of sun, sea and sand every day is a given.

Thank you for your review. We would certainly welcome you back to the cottage and I am sorry you got the impression that this would not be the case. We have always welcomed dogs to the cottage – and as you know have 2 of our own.
