This refers to the promenade running along a shear cliff face, giving panoramic views all across the bays and coves of the coastline set against a mountainous backdrop.

Everything was of the highest standard and the views were breathtaking ! . We found lovely places to eat a short walk away and didn't find the walk home daunting at all .We would definitely recommend staying here and will be back !

The location couldn’t be any better everything you want or need is in walking distance, the apartment itself was beautiful and just the right size. The private balcony was just right for a breakfast in the morning sun or a drink of the night. The swimming pool on the roof was just the right size to take our infant for a little swim. We couldn’t of found a better place if we tried. The owners were very good at responding to messages/phone calls, and we will definitely be stopping here again in the future.
