A great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

A lovely apartment, right in the centre of the town. We stayed there for New Year and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of all the rooms. Lovely decor and furniture, with everything we needed. You need to bring towels with you (this isn't so clear in the details), but this is a minor thing. We will definitely stay there again.
