It's really not far to the centre of the village where you can find nice traditional restaurants and great bars. The apartment comfortably sleeps 4, is well furnished and clean and tidy. The kitchen and bathroom appear to be quite new as they are very clean. The kitchen is perfectly well equipped for catering needs. I would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation.
