Hello! We are a group of 4 ladies considering a weekend here in November. Could anybody tell me if everything around this apartment shuts down or is there still plenty of bars and restaurants open to go to in November. Thanks you x
I stayed here the first 2 weeks in nov'17. At the end of our stay I noticed a lot of the smaller cafes and restaurants had closed or just about to close.
