We had everything we needed and were very comfortable. To be able to see the sea every day was very nice, and we struck lucky with the weather. The location was ideal for us, quiet, but within easy reach of the sites we wished to visit. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday, and one we would not hesitate to repeat.

In fact it took a while to find it! Plenty of space...good kitchen/diner. Steps inside flat leading to bedrooms quite steep and anyone with mobility problems may struggle. It is called a flat but it is second and third storey of large building so on entry you have steps to climb to get to front door and then it is like being in a house. Highly recommended ... we visited as a couple but lots of room for family as 2 bedrooms one with bunks.
