A perfect view, in the most comfortable surroundings. Beds so comfortable you don't want to get up, and if you don't you can still lie there looking at the sea. Eating on the balcony in the evenings was wonderful, just watching the tide roll in and out. Access to shops and eateries was really easy, but no piece of equipment missing in the apartment. A couple of spare bin bags would be good, but overall definitely a place for revisiting.
