I know this sort of question gets asked all the time, but I really am struggling with this and thought I'd get some expert advice!
Basically myself and my girlfriend are heading over around the beginning of September, we're thinking about hiring an apartment for 7-10 days and also would consider car hire.
Essentially we'd like somewhere not too touristy, but within a reasonable (say 20mins) walking distance to some nice cafes, bars and restaurants. Also, considering car hire parking could also be a factor...though not sure what apartments may offer this!
So any advice?
