                                                          Fantastic apartment in the centre of Vitoria

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          We had a wonderful few days in Alvaro's apartment. The apartment itself is tastefully decorated, very comfortable and very well equipped. it is exactly as the photos show. It has everything you need!. The location is perfect. It is in a lovely street right in the centre of Vitoria with the main square and old town just around the corner where there are some lovely cafes/bars to enjoy. Alvaro and his partner were very welcoming and provided all the information we needed. Vitoria is a lovely city and one of the highlights for us was the ability to cycle everywhere. We rented some bikes for a couple of days and had a wonderful time exploring the city and the surroundings. I would highly recommend this lovely apartment and Vitoria.
