She gave us a very thorough explanation of all the apartment features, along with local maps and restaurant advice. The apartment is located across the river from the old town area – which is visible from the roof-top terrace. The walk to town is about 5 minutes across the historic Roman bridge. Because it is not actually in the old town, access by car is much easier. There is on-street parking available, but not needed as the apartment has a large, lock-up garage on the first floor. The flight of steps up to the main level of the apartment are a bit longer than usual because of the garage height and quite narrow. There was no problem getting the bags up because they have built-in an electric lift (dumb waiter) which does all the work. There is also a chair lift on the staircase in case anyone has mobility problems. The apartment has been recently renovated and they have done a great job of it. The living furniture is comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped (including dishwasher) and the main and en-suite bathrooms are well appointed. There is a small enclosed terrace attached to the kitchen (great for breakfast), and a large open terrace on the roof – with views across the river to the old town. The kitchen was stocked with all the usual condiments, the bathrooms provided with soap and shampoo, and there was also powder for the dishwasher and washing machine. The TV has Spanish channels only. WiFi internet access is provided, but it is a wireless service. OK but a little slow (and very slow at busy times for the network). The only issues we had were: (1) the lack of air-conditioning. We were there during a very hot spell of summer. Leaving the windows open at night was problematic as the road outside had light, intermittent traffic that went on well into the night. and (2) the small, firm main bed. We ended up sleeping separately in the main and second bedrooms. Neither of these issues were a major problem for us over the two days we stayed, but may grate a little more over a longer stay. Overall, it is a good apartment and well located. It suited our purposes very well.
