This recent review sums up what this apartment has to offer: “Excellent apartment, very well located near the beach with a beautiful sea view from the terrace (very pleasant for breakfast). It’s very clean and nicely furnished. A car is needed to go downtown. However, some nice restaurants and a mini market are available within walking distance. The pool is very nice and few people are using it at a time with a well-kept garden. Christine, the property manager, is very helpful, sympathetic and professional. I would recommend this apartment for families with young children or teenagers, seeking for relaxing beach holiday.”
Located in an apartment complex, you will have access to the communal pool as well. With the beach only meters away, you can also enjoy some sun along the sea. The kitchen is well-equipped for meal preparations but there are a nearby restaurant and mini market as well.
