Very clean place which was a pleasure to spend a week in. Sea views are double aspect and triple glazing insulates the apartment from road noise. Air conditioning is quiet and efficient and was only needed in noon day sun. Proximity to shops, bars and restaurants makes this the ideal place to stay.

The sand beach is just across the street, just as the supermarket and a nice playground for the kids (1-6 years old). There are many decent restaurants at walking distance. We especially liked Port Garavan, just behind the supermarket in the harbor, but there were many more worth mentioning. The apartment was clean and nicely decorated, fully equiped with airconditioning and dish washer. No traditional oven though. The small garden was large enough for our two little girls to play in. Beds were decent. Walk into town takes around ten minutes. Would definately recommend.
