The appartment is in very nice condition since it has recently been completely refurbished. All appliances and furnitures , mattresses, etc are new. Therefore we expect fellow guests to leave it in the condition it was when they arrived.

Please no smoking inside for security and hygiene reasons (I and probably other guests don't like cold tobacco smell - thank you for your consideration). However, there is plethora of bars and restaurants in the area to smoke.

Many thanks!

Beautiful apartment. Wonderful range of restaurants on your doorstep. Beach really nearby. A lot of steps but we liked that as allowed for all the lovely food and the fresh baked goods from the local boulangerie. Would recommend the Good Mood Cafe on the seafront. Really friendly staff and great food.

Staying in this appartment has been perfect. Its atmosphere, stunning views out of the windows, location - literally everything. That was so easy and comfortable that it's hard even imagine the holidays can be such the paradise. Worth of each euro it costs. Very recommended.
