A huge attraction for us is this apartment’s fabulous terrace - far larger and better than the more usual balconies some apartments have. We’ve spent many happy hours just sitting with a glass of wine watching the birds and sunsets. Even when the weather isn’t so great, the big picture window still enables easy viewing of the idyllic scenery. There are only two very slight draw-backs as far as we are concerned and they are very minor indeed and certainly not the fault of apartment itself: 1. We find the swimming pool water too cool to be pleasant and we usually only manage one ‘dip’ per stay just to say we tried it. 2. Although the apartment block is only a short walk from the town centre and is all downhill going out, it’s quite a steep climb for the last few hundred yards on the way back. Helps to get us fit though! We’ve stayed here twice now and certainly hope to be back again, and again……need I say more?
