Great view & good location

4 of 5
The property is in a very good location with restaurants, cafes, a small supermarket & a very good bakery just a few minutes walk away. The views of the river, old town & mountains are exceptional. The kitchen is compact & well-stocked for everything you need to prepare meals. It's even a joy to do the washing up with the wonderful views out of the kitchen window! There is plenty of space in the property. As there was only 2 of us, I can only comment on the main bedroom. The bed is a good size & comfortable. The bedding could possibly do with upgrading. It is nice to be able to step out onto the balcony straight from the bedroom & the main bathroom next to it is a good size. I am not sure whether we were the first guests of the season, but the property could have done with an airing, as it smelt a bit musty when we arrived. It is a great location for walking, with plenty of routes from the town. We enjoyed hiking up into the mountains, but if you aren't feeling energetic, there is a nice path following the river, through a park and along to the next village. We did have problems with the front door lock, which was a bit stressful whilst we tried to contact people to get it fixed. Luckily there is a 2nd door that can be padlocked, so it didn't stop us from getting out. All in all, we have a lovely holiday & can definitely recommend the property & the area.

5 of 5
This is a well-run, clean and comfortable apartment with an exceptionally well equipped kitchen. There are stunning mountain mountain views from the terrace, where there is plenty of space for eating outside. The apartment is superbly positioned for hill walking and there are well-marked paths within a few minutes from the house. We swam in the pool every day and enjoyed the mountain views from the water. Quillan is an easy stroll and there are good markets a couple of times a week. We loved our holiday here - we’ll definitely be back.
