We had a fantastic holiday here (4 adults and 4 children) - the terrace is a wonderful space to spend the days and evenings. The house has 2 king sized rooms downstairs, a double and then an upstairs loft room that has 2 doubles and a single bed - this was perfect for the children (they loved having their own bathroom!). There is a huge downstairs bathroom and two of the downstairs bedrooms have ensuite showers too. The use of bikes (5 bikes - mostly adult sized, although one was used by my 10yr old) was a fantastic bonus - it's a very easy cycle into town to visit the amazing market or to the beach. Additional bikes can be hired locally if needed. Lovely family too - apologies for the confusion over the cost of cleaning the house (it's 200euros extra). This needs to be communicated at the time of booking as it's a large cost to be added onto the house rental and is something that I would have wanted to consider in the booking decision. Other than that it's perfect! Would happily stay here again! Thank you.
