LOVELY HOLIDAY

5 of 5
This apartment was ideal for a family of 4. A short 5 min walk to the beach and 5 mins in the other direction to the marina. The pool was fabulous , clean and not over crowded. We would recommend this apartment and would return ourselves.

Great Apartment, right in the heart of the town, just ten minutes from the strip and 15 minutes walk from the square and the old town.
