Excellent location, spotlessly clean and is really well equipped. Everything you need is no more than 5 minutes walk away, and kitchen is so well equipped you can cook if not wanting to go out. Owner/ management company great to communicate with fast response every time. Thanks again looking forward to our next visit.

The shopping areas are very convenient too. The cottage itself is beautiful in the middle of a terrace. Parking was an issue on the first day of our stay but after that was no problem. The cottage had all the conveniences needed and was very nicely appointed. Would recommend with no problem.
