TRÈS BEL APPARTEMENT AU CALME

  • 5 of 5
L'appartement est bien conçu avec un espace famille pour 2 adultes et 2 enfants avec une salle de bain et une suite à part avec sa propre salle de bain. Un coin télé confortable avec un large canapé pour tous.
L'appartement est à l'étage sans ascenseur nais ce n'est pas un problème puisqu'on peut garer le véhicule à proximité de l'appartement. La résidence est sécurisée.
Attention pour les français, comme mentionné dans le descriptif, il n'y a pas de table avec des chaises pour déjeuner mais 6 tabourets avec la possibilité de déjeuner autour d'une table-bar. La terrasse dispose d'un barbecue et d'une belle vue sur le parc. À proximité immédiate un Mall bien pratique pour faire les courses.
La literie est de très bonne qualité, l'appartement dispose de tout le nécessaire.
Sommerset West est bien placé pour accéder à la route des vins ou bien rejoindre Cape Town par la N2.
Les conseils de Cécile ont été très appréciés !
Seul petit bémol : internet accessible mais pas jusqu'à l'intérieur de l'appartement (signal pas assez puissant)
Nul doute que nous relouerons cet appartement si nous sommes amenés à revenir dans la région !
