The 40 inviting and elegantly furnished apartments (studios, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom flats) offer everything necessary for a comfortable stay; kitchen area, independently controlled air-conditioning, telephone More with direct line from outside, mini bar, broadband internet access, safe, satellite TV, Sky and access security system.
