Brilliant apartment and location

5 of 5
The apartment is well equipped and immaculately clean,The corner sofa is exceptionally comfortable, with adjustable height backrests. The new bed is very comfortable. The views are stunning and better still you can see them from the sofa too. My only word of caution would be to wheelchair users! My husband is one, you do need to be able to manage some walking as the bathrooms are not easy to manage in a wheelchair, although the rest of the apartment and the building are fine and will certainly go back again. A special mention too for Sandra, the cleaner/caretaker, she is lovely, friendly, does a great meet and greet job and couldn't be more helpful.

Charming well appointed comfortable cottage.

5 of 5
Good communications with the owner as we had to alter our dates. The cottage was clean and tidy and well furnished and appointed with everything needed for an enjoyable stay. The village is also charming with a pub on the square which did delicious meals, however we recommend booking your table as we were disappointed on a couple of evenings. We would recommend this cottage to our friends and family.
