So we opted to find this idyllic spot by renting an ATV. So off we went looking for a petrol station to top up the tank and then set out and race wildly around the island. I'm exaggerating on the racing part... our ATV had the oomph of a sewing machine. During the whole trip we had beautiful sunny skies, yet once on the ATV a few rain clouds found us and sprinkled a bit. I can't complain really, it was quite refreshing.
The supreme navigator sat directly behind me and sure enough we found the hotel where the movie was shot. Has anyone figured out what movie was shot here? Okay, here's a hint:
1989 British/American romantic comedy-drama film directed by Lewis Gilbert. The screenplay by Willy Russell is based on his 1986 one-character play of the same title.
Naturally we spent a fair bit of time on location, the locals were friendly and very accommodating. We enjoyed some food and drink and took a bunch of photos. Strolled here and there and soaked it all in. A beautiful place to escape to... if your so inclined. Simple, unpretentious, beautiful water and quiet.
|Striking a big one off the bucket list... priceless!|
We hope your day was a good one.
