Very disappointed in this studio although its located in a lovely lively street . Started badly when we waited at the wrong apartment for the owner , it is not made clear that the address on the original booking is different from the annexe apartment !! The walk from the railway station is hard with suitcases as the apartment is at the top of the steep Main Street and the stairs to the first floor are very steep ! Would have appreciated some help from the owner. When we arrived in the apartment we discovered there was a double bed , we had booked twin beds and had emailed the owner to check this 3 weeks before !! She had emailed and told us the studio had 2 double beds which was not true . The apartment has been nicely decorated . The bathroom has a shower which only seems to run on cold or Luke warm , the shower floods and the bathroom door will not close due to the damage caused by the flooding . The tv is not a flat screen it's a big old one with 2 channels this want a problem to us but its just another misrepresentation . The worse problem for a self catering apartment is the kitchen area, the fridge had been left switched off so ice box was swimming with water, the shelves were rusty, the seals mouldy and it stank also the door came off its hinges if
you were not careful . We complained to Michela the owner, she tried to clean it with a cloth but really it needs chucking !! We couldn't use it or food . The grill/ microwave was also dirty covered with the last guests toast which as I am coeliac put me off using it for my gluten free bread. Lack of equipment is also a problem , no corkscrew, sharp knives , one wine glass etc. we felt the young owner needs to realise the importance of hygiene and decent working equipment when renting self catering accommodation especially when charging 120 euros a night! Wouldn't stay here again as there are plenty of other places that are better and cheaper.
