                                                                                                      4 of 5

The apartment has a lot going for it, no less the view from the balcony and window seats in the kitchen area. Perfect size for a family of four. We had some trouble getting into the apartment when we arrived and there were some cleaning issues but we contacted the owner and housekeeper, both of which were very amenable and friendly and helped us out accordingly. We couldn't find the river for swimming, but again got prompt help and advice from the owner which resulted in my children snorkelling in the river with fish nibbling at their toes which they adored. A few finishing touches in renewing a few items and sorting out more thorough cleaning would transform what is already a wonderful place to stay. The garden looks amazing but we couldn't use it due to it being so overgrown - although the grass was cut the day we were leaving. The water is always hot and plentiful, the apartment is stunningly situated and very quiet at night. All in all we had a very special holiday and the owners are a pleasure to deal with.
