This is an absolutely perfect way to cook the fresh fish you van buy at the daily fish market and you will be living like a local in no time.

This terrace give simply magnificent views of the streets below and across the lower rooftops fo the Town.

Just by the terrace entrance is set of steps that lead up to another terrace and here the views are simply spectacular. It is a wonderfully surprising private spot but gives you such interesting and stunning 360 views. Being so high the vistas takes in a huge part of the coast and sea and from many different angles. Originally built for the wives of the fishermen to watch their husbands sail home safe this lookout is particularly high! Maybe this was once the home of a richer fisherman to be able to obtain such a good view?

We have placed 4 sun loungers and a small coffee table on the top terrace and also a sliding shade. This way you can enjoy this terrace all day long.

IMPORTANT - Please read carefully
Arrival Day
We set the arrival time at your holiday home to be any time after 1600.  This is to allow us time to prepare the holiday home for you. We are extremely flexible in that we will try and prepare the holiday home to coincide with your flight arrival time. But we can not guarantee this will happen. We are also happy to allow you leave baggage at the holiday home whilst the property is being prepared allowing you to get the most out of your holiday.
We ask that you carefully read the holiday home manual we will send you before the start of your holiday, as this contains all the contact information of the Manager who will be meeting you and looking after you during your holiday.
Our Manager will be expecting a telephone call from you on arrival day. The Manager will only attend the property after that phone call in readiness to meet you.  We do not have a reception and each guest is met personally. If we have more than one client at once arriving we will let you know and ask that maybe you give us a little time. Maybe pop for a coffee and we can call you when we are ready to meet you. Our Manager will like to spend some time with you explaining how appliances work in the holiday home and let you know about the local area and will be happy to answer any questions you might have. 
Departure Day
We set the departure time at 1000. We ask for your departure details or plans once you leave us. This way we can schedule our holiday home preparation for the next guest just like we did for you. If we can offer a later stay during the winter months we will try and accommodate you.  In the Summer months due to the high volume of guests we have to strictly adhere to the 1000 departure time at the latest.
Our "All important" Welcome book
Before the start of your holiday we will send you our online Guest Welcome Book which is packed with everything you need to know about your holiday Home and the local area.
The book gives you all of the meeting arrangements, directions and how to get the keys.

Our online Guest book is compatible with smartphones and tablets meaning you can take the guest book with you where ever you go to maximize your holiday experience.
During your holiday if you find places, not in the book you would like to recommend to future guests please do let us know and we would love to add them to our book.  The idea is to offer a great book that guests find useful.
