What a location and a beautifiuly designed two bedroomed apartment. The rooms are all large and spaceous. The kitchen well designed, modern and very well equiped and the bathroom is a wow, with a great shower.

Really nice apartment with stunning views over the sea. Lots of restaurants nearby. The owners are super nice and very helpful. Easy communication before we arrived. The apartment is above a lovely caf. There was some noise caused by the odd car in the early morning or late evening but not too bad.
