2022 update  Please note that in 2015 and 2017 we endured disruptive climate events and
for much of 2020 to mid 2022 tourism was again impeded by Covid related lockdowns
and travel restrictions. As a result, many of the private rentals we previously offered for
short term holiday lets have been repurposed for long term lets.
We currently offer only 2 private rentals for short term lets. These are:-

          Tranquile Villa        Pete's Casa
