Highs & Lows

  • The sea is key: due to the hotel’s special location on a point you can see, hear and feel it from everywhere in the hotel.

  • The historic building and grounds are beautifully maintained and so spacious: the pool area, the gardens as well as the tennis area feel like a world of its own.

  • The overall relaxed vibe created by the staff as well as the natural surroundings: you feel like you’ve stepped into a sixties beach club - a place under the sun.
