The apartment is delightful and has so many thoughtful touches.

5 of 5
This was such a haven with space to relax. Welcoming, very well appointed with delightful decor and everything one would need for a comfortable stay. The apartment is situated perfectly for easy access to cafes, restaurants and shops, the central market (every Tuesday) and is peaceful and quiet! The centuries old town is lovely and has a special feel. Surrounding areas (beaches or hills or both!) are very easy to reach by car and there are plenty of places for walking. Iris was very welcoming, kind and helpful and we were able to just relax and feel at home. And there is parking space outside! The view from the roof terrace is truly stunning. What a pleasure to stay!

Gorgeous house in a delightful village

5 of 5
Absolutely gorgeous house, beautifully restored and furnished with spectacular views of the village and glorious surrounding countryside. Well located, very quiet but only about 10 minutes walk to the village centre. Spotlessly clean and well equipped. Colau was a perfect host, very helpful and prompt to respond to any queries. Arta is very much off the UK tourist radar, but it is a delightfull place to spend a few days (or longer!) I absolutely recommend this property and would love to return, but do note that it is all open plan (including the bathroom!) so, if sharing with friends, do make sure that everyone is happy with the arrangement
