Myself and 4 friends have just arrived home after a 4 night stay at these lovely apartments, which are smack bang on the 'main' street.
We had a 2 bedroom apt. Room 401, next to the lift which did not disrupt us with any noise. One double bedroom had on suite bathroom/shower.
The other room had 2 double beds and 1 single.
All the bedding was brilliant white and all beds had memory foam mattresses, the pillow was a little too flat for me but to be honest, we were so exhausted from our day trips, as soon as my head hit the pillow i was out like a light!
There was plenty of room to avoid invading one another's space, and the apt was well supplied with cutlery/crockery and all other kitchen appliances.
Decor was contemporary with plenty of seating space in both the kitchen and lounge area.
Bathroom was clean with a good shower, and complimentary toiletries. My only gripe was that there was not enough towels, but i'm sure if we had asked we would have been supplied with them, we took our own so it wasn't a major issue.
The apts were always nice and warm.
The reception staff were wonderful and went out of their way to answer any questions we asked, and were very helpful.
There is indeed a wonderful view from the top floor where the Jacuzzi is. ( sadly we never found the time to use it) (Maybe next time!)
We hired a car for 3 days which worked out cheaper for us with there being 5 of us, A TIP! Take extra insurance if hiring, for gravel protection..we got a lovely cracked windscreen from a passing lorry, panic set in and we phoned the hire car company... "no problem, just bring the car back and we will exchange it" Brilliant!!
There is an amazing shop next door to the apts which sells goods/souvenirs, and has a little cafe at the back of the shop which does the most fantastic breakfasts.
We went there every morning. Not the cheapest, but definitely the best!
We dined on an evening, just around the corner at Vegemont? where the staff and meals were great.
Unfortunately we did not see 'the lights' but this has given us the excuse to go back to this wonderful country with its wonderful lovely laid back people.
Forget the price of things... just go!
