The owner Cruz met us on arrival and had left a welcome bottle of wine in the fridge. We had a magical few days discovering this historical, beautiful and gastronomic delight of a city.

Bakery, supermarket and market within yards of appartment and short distance to bus stop. The appartment had everything we needed and more. We enjoyed our breakfast every morning on the patio and for a short chill after a day exploring before going out for evening meal. The only negative for us Brits was that we didn't get any direct sunshine in the appartment but we were in the city and the shade would be a bonus in hotter weather. My father loved the appartment living amongst the locals. Even though the appartment is on first floor it is the equivalent of two storeys high so difficult for anybody with disabilities as no lift. The owners were very accommodating and always replied quickly to any queries. We would definitely stay again.
