Re: Elle & Ela closed

Having taken a peek at some of the asking prices for shop / restaurant premises/leases over the last couple of years it amazes me how any of them manage to make ends meet. We are after all talking about a relatively short high season with 2 or 3 fallow months per year. I know I couldn’t run my busin...

Re: Elle & Ela closed

Wanted Small Apt or Villa within walking distance of Village

As a regular visitor to CVO for the last 15 years or so I find myself tasked with trying to find a smaller apartment or town house, villa to rent for a week in June and a week in September 2016.

Re: Counterpart Driving Licence

Any one had any bother renting recently without the palaver of generating this newfangled code thingy.

Paper copy and Counterpart aren't going to be refused Shirley. :evil:

Even though the place was full we had charming, attentive and very efficient staff looking after us, and a lovely meal cooked to perfection. We have been going there regularly since it opened and have never had ...

We went last year and it was exactly the same.The waiting was unnacceptable,the food was above average but not worth the wait. There was no flow to the evening and everyone around was talking about the poor service etc rather than just ejoying the restaurant and its surroundings/setting which is a s...
