'La Bougainvillea' is renovated to a very high standard with beautiful bedrooms and a luxurious bathroom, a well equipped kitchen and a private and secluded court yard for al fresco dining.
Although in the centre of the Old Town, we're on a quiet street unlike many other rental properties, so you don't have all the street noise at night. The house is also very cool on hot summer days due to the very effective aircon, the thick walls of the house and the shaded court yard outside.
We have a stair gate upstairs and can provide a cot, high chair, toy box and car seat upon request. We'll do provisioning for you for a small fee, which can be very useful if you coming with small children and need nappies, baby food or any other items.
We'll also be happy to assist you where we can in providing local information and recommendations.
