All the rooms were a good size and the split level open layout of the lounge and dining area an excellent feature. The outside seating area made alfresco dining a nice experience every night. The gardens to the house were well maintained too. Overall a wonderful house to stay in.

A lovely apartment very near to amenities and the beautiful area of Little Venice. Fantastic bakery nearby for morning forays, and the excellent covered market is easily accessible. Parking could potentially be an issue, we would recommend that you look into Zenpark at the ibis budget just across the park; it worked perfectly for us. Une bonne vacance!!
