This studio has a unique atmosphere and design you won’t find anywhere else. The exposed brick walls, wooden ceiling beams, and chandelier create a warm atmosphere. Touches like the weathered bathroom sink and freestanding French doors separating the bed from the living area give the place an antique feel. It is sized for up to four people and is spacious enough that it won’t feel cramped. There is a large balcony outside with a bistro table for dining al fresco. If you’re visiting in the summer months, visit the farmer’s market on Saturday mornings and bring back coffee, pastries, and other goodies!
