                                            the apartment was just as described on the website. It was immaculate and very well maintained. The décor was beautiful. The view from the balcony was lovely , very peaceful and lots of wildlife to watch . The village had everything you needed and restaurants and pubs on the doorstep. The owners went out of their way to make the holiday special. We would recommend this to friends and relatives if visiting the region.
