Privacy comes first in this property. One review has this to say: “My partner and I stayed for three nights and had a very nice, relaxing stay. The apartment was perfect for just the two of us and had all the amenities we needed. In particular the kitchenette was well stocked with everything we needed to prepare a meal and the outdoor areas, both the patio outside the apartment and the pool area, were a great place to sit and eat and enjoy a swim. The pool area is actually quite beautiful. The apartment is in a very tranquil spot on a quiet street but is only a 15 to 20 minute walk into L'Escala. We had a lovely stay!”
