Super modern apartment

4 of 5
We loved our stay in San Siro. It's a super apartment although perhaps a bit tight in the living area for more than 4 adults. Before we arrived I read a review where someone complained about the kitchen knives? I remember thinking how pathetic! Actually, Gary, you could do with a decent sharp bread knife, lol . Aside from that, it really is super and we would highly recommend

Excellent & well positioned for travel

5 of 5
This is an excellent property, very clean, light and well proportioned. We had an excellent stay, thoroughly enjoyable, this property is nice an quiet and the lovely pool is a welcome bonus. An excellent area in which to base yourself as public transport links, whether by road or water are excellent. We had a hired car but hardly needed it. I can really recommend this property for a nice relaxing holiday and will definitely be back.
