The apartment block is very secure and well maintained,It is n,t full of to many holiday makers as a lot of the apartments are lived in all year round by the local people who when you see them(which isn,t too often )are very friendly.
This is very much a family apartment and is well looked after.We would ask you to enjoy and relax but please treat as you would your own home.We have a meter box for the air conditioing which takes one euro coins.We had to do this as we found without it ,it was being abused and used wrongly.To get the best effects from the aircon make sure all windows and doors are closed.
