It's a shame that when we visited late September, early October the balcony is completely in the shade apart from a tiny corner (space for one chair) which gets sunny from 4pm. This was a shame as the swimming pool is a walk away. The kitchen is sparsely equipped with very little cutlery or crockery, therefore, not much point having a dishwasher. Very useful having a washing machine and some English TV channels. Isa was very helpful and friendly with excellent communication.
