The little terrace leading off the bedroom on the second floor a perfect sun trap.. Very well equipped kitchen, and spacious comfortable shower-room. Good choice of news programmes on the satellite tv, and efficient heating / air-conditioning. Great location - right in the heart of the town, yet tranquil and quiet at night (bedroom at the rear of the building). A great place to stay!
