The apartment is perfectly appointed with no detail missed. It was so clean, that it felt like a new house. Diane went out of our way to ensure that dad had a special birthday, by organising his cake from the local bakery and Prosecco in readiness for our arrival. The setting is perfect for beautiful views of the valley. A truly beautiful apartment, and a fantastic host. Thank you.
