He was there to greet us after having arranged a pickup at the airport for the six of us. The apartment is large and well laid out. On the 4th floor but there is a lift. It's an easy climb though particularly as a way to work off lovely long lunches and the like. We were 3 adult couples and the place accommodated us well with no one feeling cramped or on top of everyone else. Well equipped kitchen. A few minor problems with fridge and wifi but Ivan was keen to help. Comfortable beds, lots of towels. Is also well located and is only a few minutes from the patisserie and local bistros, five minutes to a good shopping and eating area, 10 to the promenade and Old Town and main shopping street. So was relatively free from street noise. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend to others.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

It matches the description and with high ceilings, well apportioned kitchen, TV system, extra large shower, comfortable bed (extremely quiet while we were there) and even a "pay as you need" air conditioning unit. These facilities coupled with its location which is within easy walking distance of the station and main shopping district makes it perfect for a relaxing stay. Yes the "Old Quarters" and Bay des Anglais" are a bit further away but they can be easily walked or why not try, as we do, the Veloblue which is a very convenient way of getting around. The tram system is also within a easy 5 minute stroll. For us this is way from the "hustle and bustle" of the main tourist areas but yet within easy reach of them and you feel more part of the local community with some excellent eating venues on your door step. We will definitely be making our fourth visit next year with the owners making the booking, key delivery and return process as simple and efficient as it can be.
