Excellant facilities and clean modern appearance of property. Very useful to have own parking space

5 of 5
No issues for the facilites, except needing the manual to use the cooker and m.wave! (but we re not technical bods- so personal issue there). Used the oven but didn't use the microwave. Nice to have adequate pans to cook with as we do nt eat out often when on holiday. Ideal for two or two and a baby toddler. Nice to be in the village community. Bathroom lovely en-suite to bedroom.

Fantastic apartment.

5 of 5
We were given clear instructions regarding gaining access to the property from the owner. This block of flats has excellent facilities. It has underground parking and a lift which makes returning home after an outing very easy. We used the gym and swimming pool several times and always had them to ourselves. The flat itself is very comfortable and bright with stunning views. The kitchen is well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in 22 , Horizons.
