From the warm welcome through to departure staying here was an absolute pleasure.
The couple who ran the apartments couldn't do enough for us from the very minute that we got there. We were given excellent advice about the local area in terms of where to eat, trips worth doing and they also are kind enough to give you a sun umbrella for the day if you go to the beach or on a trip. The owners were also kind enough to organise to us a taxi from the airport (there is a bus but we would have to have waited an extra two hours due to flight times as it was late at night) and the taxi driver was also most friendly and was happy to give us advice about what to do and where to go. When we arrived we were greeted with a starter pack which included bread, water and some sweets which was lovely!
The apartment itself was immaculate, beautifully furnished and had two fantastic balconyies and a sea view to die for. The apartments are opposite the sea which is just across the road. To wake up and open the doors to that view and the sound of the waves is simply breathtaking. Another reviewer mentioned about noise from the road. I can assure you that the road isn't that busy and the doors are soundproof when closed, there are also shutters outside of the door and there is aircon. Let me reiterate, THERE IS NO NOISE!
Close proximity to the beach ie 5-10mins walk, 5 mins away from the restaurants and village. It is situated in a perfect location.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and make no mistake I will be returning here again as it is one of my best holidays ever as the apartments have everything that you could want.
An excellent experience and I would thoroughly recommend.
I can't wait to go back!
