This delightful group of three properties offers the rare opportunity to experience genuine village life, with limitless possibilities for walking, bird-watching, riding, fishing, swimming and golf. Or just relax in the lovely mature gardens, each with a private swimming pool, picking oranges, lemons, pomegranates and grapes from the trees and vines.

The houses have been sensitively restored using traditional materials and can be rented in any combination, thus providing maximum flexibility for groups of various sizes, with some privacy for different families (or generations) as the gardens and pools are individual. For a full understanding of the nature of this unusual property it is important to view the website.

The houses are traditionally decorated and furnished, retaining their character, but with the benefit of modern comforts, and are all fully equipped. Bedrooms are spacious and airy, with superb views, leading onto terraces.

The village is a conservation village, over 200 years old, in the middle of the National Park. There are 6 excellent golf courses within very easy reach (one only 1 km away), and tennis courts nearby. Bird watching tours are arranged, including trips to off-shore sea bird colonies. Close by are beautiful secluded beaches surrounded by cliffs, some only reached on foot. Wonderful cliff-top walks between beaches, miles of rough riding, splendid sea fishing, great surfing, and many archaeological remains, including a ruined Roman castle 1 km away.

There are restaurants and simple bars in the village, and a range of cultural activities, museums, galleries, concerts are available in Lagos.
