It' s aim is to leave the town and to remain in a peaceful and nice place. It is a very good place, it is like a seaside home, it was constructed for the holidays. There' s a cuisine in the flat so you don't have to be worried about going out all the while as there aren't many there.

Yes, the chalet has a great position - near the sea and other facilities, but at the same peculiarly peaceful and home. It' been nice meeting you, and it was a true joy to have you here.
