Ideal holiday rental

The apartment is on a brilliant position with huge picture windows and balcony to make the most of the setting. It is excellently equipped and beautifully furnished and provides a base that is an absolute delight. I only wish we had booked for a longer stay

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Totally enjoyed our 6 night stay and the place was perfect with a few nights on our own and then with our teenagers arriving for the last few days. Everything was provided and so close to everything. Thank you Adam. We will be back next year.
