What is it about a place that compels you to return time
Is it the tranquil
beauty of a spot nestling between a mountainside awash with wild
flowers and teeming with birds, butterflies and a whole variety
of other interesting wildlife?
Is it the quiet,
broken only by the sounds of nature and where you awaken to the
sound of waves
lapping out of the sparkling azure sea 50 yards away, and the
songs of birds on the hillside?
Perhaps it is the
quiet balmy evenings under a pincushion of stars without the
intrusion of discos, cars and the madding crowd.
At Alkan's, you
decide how fast the pace of life should be.
For those who are happy to spend their days walking, bird watching, exploring
ancient castles or just enjoying nature or fishing, there are
few holiday villages better placed.
We must not forget the greatest sight of all, magnificent green and
loggerhead turtles swimming ashore to lay their eggs and, later
in the year, the baby turtles hatching and returning to the sea.
