Great apartment , great location, beautiful view from the balcony

4 of 5
Really enjoyed it, lovely location right in the centre close to the shops and market( Sunday, Wednesday) close to the beach. Only trouble with parking ,so once you find a space better not move the car. People rented before us left cut nails all over the flour on the balcony so it wasn't too clean but not the owner fault . Would stay again 100%
