Interaction with guests
A secure key safe is provided for access to the property at a time to suit yourself (after 3pm on day of arrival), and further keys can be found inside the property for ease of access throughout your holiday. During your stay you will be looked after by our housekeepers Tony and Catherine for a regular pool clean, change of linen and to deal with any day to day problems that might crop up. They will call in to see you the day after arrival to ensure all is well and answer any questions you may have about the farmhouse or the island. As I do not live on the island I cannot greet you myself, but I am accessible by email at any time before and during your stay and will always call if there are larger unforeseen problems.

Even so it is possible to hire a car on the island for just one or two days and the rest of the time it is easy enough to explore the island by bus, bike or simply walking on the many coastal walks. There is also a hop on-hop off tourist bus that provides a very good service through the day all over the main areas of the island at reasonable cost. Taxi services are also available.
