-- ACCOMMODATION DESCRIPTION

Upper ground floor: large living-room (TV) with dining area, double sofa-bed, fireplace and kitchen corner, spacious double bedroom, twin-bedded room, bathroom with shower, small storeroom
This apartment is very bright and provides a large private outdoor area (lawn) furnished with table and chairs.
Lovely position, and extremely helpful owner, but the information about the property was less than others we stayed in and the lack of cooking facilities and sufficient comfortable seats mean that we would not return. For the price, it did not have as much to offer as other villas we have rented in better areas.
