On the down side we found it a bit out of the way so we had to drive to bars and restaurants which meant we couldn't have a good old drink but on the whole a nice break.

Excellent clear communication from the owner. The apartment is ideally situated within easy walking distance to all the amenities we needed. Would definitely return.
