It makes an arduous task of transporting luggage and shopping to the apartment even for an average person. Other than that the property was clean and the owners family were very friendly.

Really nice to be able to sit on the veranda to eat and watch the world go by. Great garden with firepit so sitting out under the trees and stars was lovely. Loads of wood provided. Nice open fire inside as well. House had everything we needed - plenty of hot water all the time. Note that there is no wi-fi (good or bad - depending on your attitude to electronic communication on holiday!) or a washing machine. Mobile signal is good though and there is a long washing line. Owners very helpful and quick to respond to questions. Nobody wanted to go home!
