Big garage and boot and gear storage was excellent. Well equipped and maintained and would definitely book again. Terrace right outside the kitchen was ideal for soaking up the last of the sun and enjoying the views. 10 min walk down into town, 15 minutes back up !

It is situated close to the local town with parking only a minute walk away from the aparment. The apartment was cosy and very well equipped with lovely views of the surrounding hills. Anthony was very quick to reply to messages. Jagoda was very helpful and showed us around the apartment. She was only a call away if we had any queries or problems.
