We are a retired professional couple and we visited this property on our own (first time without the kids...hoorah!!). This property is very conveniently located with very close access to the local main road. The description given is very accurate.We found everything spotlessly clean, modern and 'just right' for our stay. The premises is set back from the access road in a small block of similar properties. Parking is off road and safe. The wifi was VERY convenient for us as we would usually contact the family just to make sure all was well. Cleverly, the front and back of the property were equally as good if one wanted to eat outdoors either privately or looking out from the front. Washing machine, cooking facilities, TV and entertainment was all modern and working 100%. However, what made our stay particularly pleasing was the friendliness of the proprietors Claude and Marie. They were absolutely fantastic and fully knowledgeable about the local area and had good information about which restaurants to choose and where to go for shopping and although we didn't need to speak with them during our stay when we did contact them to arrange departure they were available on demand and again full of advice regarding our travel times etc. Oh, and thanks very much for the welcome gift. The contents were very welcome. I would definitely recommend this property to others Thanks again Claude and Marie for a wonderful stay Good Luck Tom and Maggie

It was perfect for our requirement, modern, spotlessly clean and right on the beach. A huge advantage was the fact that we didnt have to pay for sunbeds or umbrellas on the beach because we were residents. It was a 15/20 minute walk into town but you could take the beach or the road. Just make sure you have the number of a local taxi if you are carrying heavy loads of shopping back. There were nice little local places to eat at night if you didnt want to go into town. Would highly recommend this apartment and area if you are looking for a stress free, relaxing holiday as we were
