We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blue Oars. As a family of 5 there was everything there that we needed. It was so close to the beach and local shop and just a couple of minutes away from restaurants. The house supplied everything that you would need to make for a great stay. We will definitely be back.

Perfect holiday house

  • 4 of 5

We had a very relaxing weekend. The property is located close to a quiet beach perfect for a swim and sunbathing. The house is well kept and well equipped - making it a comfortable stay. The village Center is nearby and has a number of good restaurants as well as an IGA.
