This is going to be a glowing review. For the record, I am not the owner, Sylvia, writing a phoney testimonial and am not related to her, though after being her guest it is hard not to consider her a friend.
The only fault that we two fusspots could find with Silde Apartments was an electric hob that would not simmer gently enough for my pasta sauce - the wondeful Sylvia replaced it immediately.
It is rare to find a holiday apartment where everything you need is at hand and in good condition - kitchen roll, soaps, pc connection, mosquito zapper, pots and pans that have not been sctratched to nothingness, lamps where you need them, airco, a decent shower, adequate storage and shelving, extra pillows....
Syliva has put a great deal of thought into providing everything her guests could want and checks to make sure there is nothing missing. She is there to help and does so with genuine care - no fawning or fluttering around you - you are her guests and she is there to make sure you lack nothing and she does that in a businesslike but friendly manner.
The apartment itself was simple and charming with plenty of light and wooden slatted blinds all round, adequate seating for us to relax in the evening and a balcony overlooking a pleasant corner, like a little square, where local grannies chat and greet you as you enter and leave. A corner shop for provisions, a newspaper shop, parking for your car and the old harbour are all within 3 minutes' walk.
My only reservation in writing this is it might contribute to Silde's popularity and make it harder for us to get a room with our usual last-minute habits. But then Sylvia and Antonetta who supports her deserve the accolade.
