Ideally positioned for couples and families looking for a laid-back, slow paced getaway in a quaint and historic village that resonates community living in a sustainable way through fresh food markets, artisanal home-grown products and home baked goods.
From luxury all inclusive-stays to family-friendly self-catering and everything in between.
Whatever floats your boat, there is a lot to explore in and around the village itself.
