The shared inifinity pool was very attractive and suitable for all abilities of swimmer. There was plenty of seating around the pool to enjoy the scenery.The recycling arrangements are a bit complicated but it is good to know they take it seriously. The mosquitoes restricted our evenings on the terrace, however. We were lucky that there was no one in the apartment next to us whilst we were there as the outside seating areas were right next to each other. We left some information on local supermarkets as there was no obvious information available in the apartment other than some leaflets and maps of things to see by previous occupants. We did thoroughly enjoy the holiday and had a very relaxing time exploring the local area.

This apartment was amazing, beautifully presented with everything in it that you would need and more. Such a relaxing place with stunning views and filled with light. Great position too with the deli and gelattaria underneath, two superb restaurants and four pools. Couldn't have asked for anything more. The owner was more than helpful in all our enquiries and also the hotel linked to the apartments were really helpful if we needed assistance with directions etc. We will be returning

De locatie is een eind van de straat gelegen en daardoor ook heel rustig. Nochtans is er op een 3-tal km mogelijkheid om handelszaken te bereiken. Er was een groot en net zwembad, waar ook de huurders die in het kleinere rode huis logeerden, van genoten. De huizen zijn zodanig gesitueerd dat er voldoende privacy is. De gereserveerde en vriendelijke eigenaar was erg bezorgd over de rugklachten van mijn echtgenoot. Dit gaf ons dan ook een goed gevoel. Dus, een vakantieverblijf om aan te bevelen! En, later nogmaals over te doen! familie Verschueren uit België
