Everything was spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated with all modern conveniences. The decor, bedding, crockery were all of a good quality. Emanuele was really helpful and always on call if needed, but never intrusive. This was a delightful setting at all times of the day. I would definitely recommend it to all my friends.... the only drawback for less able people would be the steps to access the town.

The apartment was so tastefully decorated as you can see from the photos so many lovely little touches in every room. Plenty of crockery, towels etc beach chairs and umbrella everything you would need for a great holiday. The proprietor met us when we arrived and kept in touch via email while we were there to make sure everything was OK which was so kind of him. As you can see I have given top marks for this lovely apartment and would highly recommend.
