We stayed here as a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 pre teen girls) for 10 nights.
The host is great - very attentive and responsive to emails both before the trip and during.
The apartment was lovely - very comfortable, bright and fresh and perfectly located to explore locally.
The main lounge area is comfortable - would have benefitted from a coffee table perhaps and maybe a TV - although the bedrooms both have one so you have to sit in there if you want to watch anything. It lacks creature comforts which is fine for a few days but - after 10 days - felt a little stark.
The kitchen area is just 2 hobs - no oven or microwave. The hob is small so only fits one saucepan at a time - not really self catering of you want to eat in at all? But there are adequate glasses / crockery etc and they are lovely quality items too.
The bedrooms are comfortable but again, no bedside tables etc and both beds have to be climbed into from the foot end. Fine for us but maybe a challenge for others. Neither room had curtains and the window is directly onto a walkway - we hung towels up!! This may have changed as we were there soon after renovations. Otherwise the rooms are cosy - lovely lighting. The shower room is quirky but not necessarily functional. We were super careful not to get sand in the shower as worried it would block - I suspect some might not be so respectful which will result in a blocked plug. Without a shower screen it becomes a wet room without it being intentional which may cause damp in time.
Overall though we enjoyed our stay. The apartment is so perfectly located and feels clean and tasteful. The art work is just beautiful and I have since purchased an identical picture - I needed the pink poodle in my life!! There are lovely local restaurants - "Le Cave" just down the hill - and the gelato place opposite. We got bread and croissants from up the hill every day and frites from the take away on the harbour front to go with our confit duck (one hob so improvised!!). We used the Super U in Monaco at the start of the week (cheaper than the local supermarket)
The owner has a great property and has renovated it well - he has a lovely style. I hope visitors treat it with respect.
