Just picking up on your point about a washing machine - unfortunately we didn't have quite enough space in the kitchen to plumb one in. It was a toss-up between a mini dishwasher and washing machine or a decent sized dishwasher! We made the decision to go with the full sized dishwasher as felt it would get more use. However our housekeepers provide a collect and return wash/dry service - they charge about £7 per load currently for this service and the guests arranges this directly. The apartment does have ironing and airing facilities.
Look forward to hearing from you again
