Nice and well equipped apartment

5 of 5
The apartment matches the description. We enjoyed staying there. It is a nice renovated and well equipped apartment. The owners are friendly and very welcoming. The place is at approximately 15 minutes walking distance from the centre. Supermarket, shops and restaurants are around the corner. Free car parking in the area. Only one small minus: a few small tables would make it more complete. I will recommend it to friends.
