Very clean and nice.

5 of 5
Stayed in this very nice flat,for 6 nights,and everything was perfect. It is away slightly from the centre,but a very pleasant walk takes you there within 10 minutes.There is a bakers just round the corner too. I would be very happy to stay at this property again. ( sorry that this review is so late,but I could not find how to leave a review,as I find the Homeaway site very unclear.)
