The apartment, with aircon, is beautifully furnished and equipped with everything required for a easy holiday including a stocked kitchen, beach towels and umbrella. Not to mention the lovely bottle of Rose wine and fresh fruit that had been left for us. Marie, Bernard and their delightful daughter gave us a tour of the immediate area which was a really useful orientation. I can't recommend this lovely apartment highly enough.
