Super flat-great location

4 of 5
The flat was great, and we were welcomed with some lovely flowers, and fresh bread, butter, cold meats and cheese and tomatoes. Which was a nice touch. The flat is easy walking distance from the old town, and close to shops. A real "home from home". The only downside was my daughter heard noise from a nearby disco on Friday and Saturday, so didn't sleep well then. Otherwise, a terrific flat, and an enjoyable holiday.
