Great apartment and location

5 of 5
My husband, son and I stayed here for two weeks in August and loved it. The apartment was spacious and well equipped, with a good sized sofa bed for our 15 year old son. Located on the marina there was great access to these bars and restaurants, as peaceful or busy as you like depending on the one you choose. It was also well located for the beach (15 mins walk) and train station (10 mins walk) and large supermarket (5 mins walk). Over the bridge in the old town there's an abundance of restaurants and bars ranging from traditional tapas, pizza, sushi and Indian, to elegant European - really something for everyone.
