Well-equipped cottage with a wonderful view

5 of 5
We have just spent a nice week in this house, clinged on a slope with a view over the valley and the sea. The kitchen-corner is well equipped, and the host is kind and helpful.

Relaxing holiday home

4 of 5
We spent the Christmas week in the apartment and enjoyed it really well. The environment is calm, and the airport at the bottom of the sea did not bother anyone. The apartment had all the necessary and really large terrace was nice to enjoy both the sun away from meals. The hosts were very helpful and friendly.
