The apartment was in a quiet location with lovely views. Beatrice was great with communication from pre booking and throughout. The bus timetable she provided for arrival from the airport was extremely helpful.

Lucia was very extremely helpful , spoke good English & had 2 beautiful little daughters.. Only small drawback was no parking on site but the 100mtr walk was worth the effort. Clean & well maintained & I would recommend to anybody

Sitting outside with a glass of wine and watching the evening boat traffic and the sun going down over the mountains was incredible. The owner is wonderful to work with and the on site manager very responsive to the couple of small issues we had. The apartment has everything you could possibly need from satellite TV to three different coffee makers! We had a brilliant week sampling the local restaurants and doing some amazing mountain hikes.
