The aim was to stay at Montalbano's house for a week. The trip did not disappoint. The apartment did not disappoint. Montalbano's was a great place to stay. The views and beach with restaurants close by. Recommend.

I cannot answer that. I had hired a car throughout my stay. You are out of the way here. Did you know that they do Montalbano trips which maybe better for you.
