Really beautiful apartment - and la carihuela is beautiful too!

5 of 5
This apartment is fantastic! It was so clean and tidy and the owner couldn't do enough for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our 1st trip to La Carihuela with loads of tapas restaurants as well as every other type of restaurant on offer. The sofa bed was extremely comfortable and my kids 12 and 9 both slept really well. Would definitely book again!
