The apartment is well equipped,however access is via a few flights of stairs which could be a problem for anyone with mobility problems.We just about managed,but enjoyed our stay

If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay and chill then this is right for you. The property is very high spec in a secure area with a small private patio/garden which leads to an infinity pool overlooking the sea. Paradise! The owners have spent a considerable amount of time ensuring that everything you need to know about the area and accommodation are to hand and on the odd occasion we needed advice they came back to us straight away. We will be back!
