3. Walk out of the village south for 300m and turn left towards the sea for 500m down a quiet road through the pine forest.

Please also note that:
Electricity is supplied through a coin meter that only accepts 1 and 2 euro coins. The cost is roughly 1.5 euro per 24 hrs, except when air-con is used which more than doubles to 3.5 euro to 4 euro per 24 hour.
However, there are noiseless ceiling fans in both bedrooms, plus portable floor fans for the hot times, so use of the Air - Con is generally not necessary.
PLEASE be aware that the Air-Con can be very expensive and should be switched off when not in use.
