The apartment is very well kitted out with everything you would need. It was lovely relaxing on the balcony in the evening with the sea view. The location is great as well as it is only a 10-15 minute to the center of the village. We will definitely be back.

                                                                                                      We arrived early and were pleased to be able to move in straight away, as the cleaner was just finishing. The location is really good, about 100 m back from the marina and about a 10 minute walk from the centre. We hired a car and were lucky enough to be able to park outside the house every day, being in a quiet side street. We liked the high ceilings in all rooms as it helped to keep the house a little cooler. The bedrooms did get rather warm at night, but leaving windows open gave a cooling through- flow of air. The courtyard also gave us a place to cool down, especially at meal times. The sun shone mid-morning until late afternoon for sun worshippers. The b-b-cue was a nice addition. We thought the kitchen was adequately stocked with pots and pans etc. We were rather disappointed with the quantity of cutlery and crockery ( 4 or 5 knives, forks, 6 tea spoons and similar numbers of plates etc and glassware and no mugs ,for a property catering for 4 people ), yet boasted a dishwasher! The sitting room was a great place to relax, cool and plenty of seating to watch TV or read. The bathroom was very large and the shower worked really well, with ample supply of hot water all the time. Bed linen and towels were changed half way through our stay, although the towels were on the small side. A thoroughly enjoyable stay
