We had the best holiday and the house really made it.

Comfortable, clean, quiet, lovely garden. Not perfect for the over-Seventies like us - very steep hill to walk up, no grab handles in the showers, no shelves or cabinets in the bathrooms to store shavers, etc., lovely view slowly being obscured by growing trees, noisy fridge-freezer ( which wouldn't matter in a separate kitchen ) was a nuisance in the open-plan main room, unnecessarily complicated entertainment system, troublesome lock to the entrance door from foyer to apartment.
