This hidden gem is well tucked away along a gravel road which is a few Kms from anywhere. Once you get there you will appreciate the natural beauty of the surroundings adding to the 'get away from it all' feel.

But the real charm comes from the carefully inserted luxury and privacy, with barns converted into noble chalets, and a tastefully decorated pool...

We will come definitely back...

We spent three nights in this wonderful cosy location after driving appr. 20+ kilometres on a farm track but it's worth. Our room was one of the ocean view chalets with a chimney which we could see from the bed, very romantic. We also ordered massage in the chalet, very convenient. It takes a moment to get to the beach...
