Brilliant 5 days

5 of 5
My family of four (kids 13 and 10) enjoyed being at the heart of the village. Sitting on the balcony watching the world go by in the Sun was an early Easter pleasure. Donna helped us be organised with super restaurant recommendations. All the facilities in the apartment were as promised.
