                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      Brilliant location, right in the heart of the Old Town and close to everything. It's quiet in the apartment and yet you exit the building right into the buzz of the market, shops and restaurants. It's well equipped and comfortable, and Sylvie was very welcoming and kind. Headroom is cramped up on the mezzanine and the occasional bumped head is almost inevitable for grown-ups (we were 4 adults), but we had a great week.
