Firstly, the apartment is really spacious so you don’t feel on top of one another. The location is great, short walk to restaurants, bars, coffee shops. Also it’s right by one of the tourist bus pick up points, so really quick to get on excursions. Would definitely stay here again!

Karl met us an showed us round and had put the hot tub on so it was nice and hot. The apartment is ideally situated within walking distance of the town and close to some nice restaurants. I would have no hesitation in recommending the apartment to anyone.
