The location was perfect for walking to the city and local sights and the pool was perfect to cool down on hot days. The apartment itself was clean, light and airy and the kitchen was well equipped. Christine was very welcoming and was flexible with our check-in which was helpful as we had a very long drive. She also answered all our questions before we arrived. We would recommend a stay here.

We cannot thank Jenny and Jimmy enough for everything they did to ensure all our needs were met during our stay. We had a fabulous week - it was beautiful and well furnished. We had a few special requests including providing an airbed so my brother could stay the night before he got married and also a travel cot and high chair for my two year old. The accommodation, pool and surrounding gardens are lovely and well looked after. All in all, a great place to stay. You feel out of the hustle and bustle but not far away from attractions and places to visit. There are two folders providing considerable information of recommendations for restaurants, attractions etc. Very handy. Thank you again and would love to return in the future to discover the local area some more. We were caught up in wedding celebrations for a few days and didn't get to see everything we would have wished to! Anna, Simon, Samuel and Jenny
