    “It was absolutely stunning!”

    ! It was such a lovely place to come back to and relax after a long day or after a beautiful coastal walk. After booking I was very much looking forward to going there and I will definitely be staying there again. I 100% recommend it for a place to stay in Ruan Minor! :)
