Stayed here over half term with family. Very comfortable and spacious apartment with everything on your doorstep so it was lovely not to have to use the car. Owners were very accommodating and a pleasure to meet. Would recommend for a visit and we will probably come back again next year for a short break.
Many thanks for taking the time to post a review and for your kind words. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
