The apartment was spotless and had everything you could imagine you'd need - the rooms were generously sized, the balcony the full length with plenty of seating areas and the all important table and chairs for early morning coffees in the sun. Only a five/ten minute stroll to the beach and marina and all the beautiful restaurants and bars. Would definitely return and recommend to friends.
