The bedroom is a good size with a large bed which was also very comfortable The Kitchen is well equipped with every thing you need The patio can be enjoyed Rain or Shine as the Balcony above gives excellent cover In the town we found many different restaurants, all with outside eating areas Martin was very helpful , nothing was too much trouble , and his English was perfect
