Excellent apartment in a superb location.

5 of 5
The apartment is situated centrally with great restaurants extremely nearby. The apartment itself is excellent and the use of the enclosed and private rear garden is a real bonus. Absolutely excellent apartment I would recommend to anyone.

quaint stone cottage in good position

4 of 5
The cottage is roomy and well equipped, parking is sometimes slightly awkward, positioned near good restaurants and bakery. The courtyard is better than pictures show with sun directly in at the end of the day. Only reason stopping 5 stars is that the stairs to the 3rd floor bedroom are very steep and turn very sharply at the top, not easy to get cases to if you are not fit and suffer from any joint problems.
