Thank you for taking time to write such a detailed review. We are delighted that you had such a good holiday in our apartment.
We have noted your comment/recommendation about lack of oven. We previously had a combination oven-grill-microwave, but found the oven function didn't work very well, especially for pizzas, so we installed a new microwave this ear. For next year, we will install a small worktop oven. We look forward to welcoming you again.
