The apartment is spacious and airy, the decoration and furnishing is comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped including a four burner gas hob and small electric oven. The balcony, which has lovely views over the roof tops, is great for breakfast and warm evenings. There's a large free car park two minutes walk away, and Julien is very friendly and helpful.
