Our place is right on the beach, about half an hour's drive from the city centre on a rural road. There is no public transport, so you need your own car. We've got an additional spare room which can be used as "overflow", e.g. if you have kids.

Our village is small and doesn't have any shops or restaurants, so you'll need to bring all your supplies with you. You're welcome to use our kitchen, dining room and lounge.
