The apartment was clean, bright and attractively decorated. It had all the kitchen equipment you could need and a big dining table. Beds were comfy, the shower was hot with good water flow, and the views from the terrace were lovely on a sunny day. Christine looked after us very well. She speaks excellent English and was friendly and helpful. There is a washing machine, but it is in the basement of the house, so just ask Christine if you need to use it. We would definitely stay here again!
