Good points
Well situated near to the beach and a short stroll into the lovely little market town. The apartment was clean and very well equipped with everything we needed for a two week stay. The children loved the pool. Would happily recommend the apartment to our friends and go back again. Good value for money.

Good points
Exceptionally clean,and well equipped a place for everything and everything in its place. Ideal location on the coast with sea views and the town a five minute walk away with everything you needed, children enjoyed the pool and the beaches. We all enjoyed our holiday and would definitely go back to the same appartment.

Bad points
The children would have enjoyed a bit of English T.V but it wasn't a problem as they took loads of DVDs to watch.

Good points
Across the road from a fantastic beach, 10 mins walk from the town center with shops, restaurants and cafes. Lovely walks along the coast, appartment just on the velocean bike path easy riding for families. Owners very helpful and welcoming for a stay in their holiday home.

Bad points
Worth noting that the shared pool at the apartment is not heated so even in August is cold but still lots of fun :)
