What a lovely place to stay. The apartment was spotless, modern, comfortable and thoughtfully well equipped. The location is ideal, being so close to a beautiful beach with lovely coastal walks. It is such a relaxing area to stay but with lots to do if you want to venture a little further afar. I can't wait to return. more
