Jean and Nadine greeted us upon arrival and are two of the most lovely people you could meet. Their apartment is fantastic !! Spotlessly clean with the most spectacular views one could wish for. If you choose to stay here then you won't be disappointed. Many thanks to our hosts for making our stay so comfortable and special. Gary and Jill

The apartment was perfect for a relaxed time with the pool being just steps away and there being all you need for a comfortable holiday. It's so handy to the square and all the amazing streets that run off it. Plenty to see and eat as you roam the old town. The hosts and on site property manager are so pleasant and helpful. Would return tomorrow if we could! Thanks for the amazing few days in your lovely Casa Leah.
