We had a family of five adults, who all managed to stay in the apartment without any problem of space or things to do. The comfortable living area has big sofas and a huge TV with DVD player. There is a good selection of DVDs for the days you want to just chill out indoors. The bedrooms are spacious and provide enough room to unpack and store your belongings. The bathroom with jacuzzi was a welcome feature especially after a long day shopping in nearby market towns! We made full use of the kitchen and were able to cook a variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner foods. The dishwasher is genious and a nice addition when you are all on holiday. We found the cupboards well stocked with plates, serving bowls, saucepans, pots, drinking and wine glasses. We even found one nice pre-holidayer had left enough tea bags, coffee and dishwashing powder to get us started! Thank you for providing us with peaceful, hassle-free accomodation in such a lovely town.
