          Family return visit to this delightful boutique hotel, first time for two family members. An evening here never disappoints. Excellent meal and service in stunning setting, enhanced by wonderful music from a funky jazz duo. Highly recommended.

          Hi The rain is not a lot in May maybe one day it could rain for 1 hour then be brilliant sunshine. It is very hard to predict but I think it is a ;lovely time of the year. The rains usually start around July.
