Stunning views of the mountains and the whole house is a very high spec and clearly extremely well looked after. Big heated pool with its own shower room and seating area. Close to lots beaches. We were a family of 3 adults, 2 OAP's and 2 young children and the living space worked really well for us all without feeling too cramped. All rooms have electric blackout blinds too which meant the kids slept very well. Would highly recommend this as a place to stay.

It also has a spacious covered terrace (complete with both a comfy seating area & a dining area). Whilst the very pleasant owners live on the ground floor, they were not in the least intrusive (+ the apartment has a separate entrance).
