This fishing and harbour town, immersed in tradition and character, attracts visitors from far and wide – no one it seems, can resist the hybrid of old and new, where uneven roofs and cobbled streets meet contemporary art galleries and off-the-cuff boutiques.
Experience it all for yourself. Take in the pebbled beaches, wooden clad houses, fish markets and castle, before settling on a bite to eat at our place.
