Great location in beautiful town

5 of 5
Light, airy, roomy with great views. Awesome internet speed (92Mbs). Very clean place which was a pleasure to spend a week in. Sea views are double aspect and triple glazing insulates the apartment from road noise. Air conditioning is quiet and efficient and was only needed in noon day sun. Proximity to shops, bars and restaurants makes this the ideal place to stay.

Well equipped apartment. Good location.

5 of 5
This apartment is modern and well equipped. There were two of us staying and it had everything we needed. There is good security and excellent air con. There is a small quiet balcony at the back of the property. We would recommend for a couple but it might be too small for a family with two or more children.
