Agosto proprio da fiaba

  • 5 of 5

Posizione perfetta, a due passi da un mare molto bello... adatto sia a famiglie che a giovanissimi!

L'appartamento è spazioso ed ha tutte le comodità; molto utile e piacevole l'ampia terrazza sul retro e rilassantissimo terrazzo sul tetto con vista mare.

I proprietari sono molto ospitali e simpatici.

... e a due passi dalla Scala dei Turchi!

  • 5 of 5

Soluzione ideale per famiglie con bambini grazie all'ampio spazio esterno e a due spaziose camere da letto. L'appartamento é in ottime condizioni. La vicinanza alla spiaggia (circa 25 metri dal cancello di casa) consente bagni rinfrescanti a tutte le ore. Da non trascurare anche la vicinanza alla famosa Scala dei Turchi (circa 700 metri lungo la spiaggia). I proprietari sono cordiali e disponibili. Sicuramente consigliato.

Owner's Response: Grazie molte per le belle parole spese per la casa di Biancaneve ed i 7 nani. La collocazione a due passi dal mare, le bellezze naturali del mare e della Scala dei Turchi, il sole ed il clima sono elementi fondamentali. Noi cerchiamo di mettere a disposizione una casa in ottime condizioni ed un po' di gentilezza e cortesia.
