The apartment was perfect for our family, well equipped (even with fresh bread, wine and coffee!) and well maintained. The pool, trampoline and jacuzzi kept us all happy. Would definitely recommend and only suggestion is perhaps a fan for the bedrooms on hot nights.

Donny, alongside his charming family, made us feel very comfortable throughout. Our beautiful little 'Cherry' apartment, was clean, well-finished, and offered us an unobstructed mountain panorama from our own private garden. We will see you again soon!
