There are two sets of fairly steep stairs, some with no handrail. The apartment was well equipped for 6 people and had a lovely roof terrace. There was air conditioning, very much needed during our stay, and modern, well-equipped bathrooms. Despite being in the centre of town it was a very quiet location. The fixtures and fittings are of a very high standard. A very small criticism would be the need for a booster box so Internet can be accessed from the roof terrace.

It is wonderfully situated in the heart of the old town and just a minute's walk to pick up provisions. The layout of the apartment is lovely, it is very well equipped, and we particularly enjoyed using the pretty terrace in the evenings for bbq and a glass of wine - such a bonus to have in an apartment with a great central location. Communication with Thierry before our stay was great and Delphine, the local contact during our stay, was extremely helpful. Would definitely recommend. Thank you again.
