Lovely apartment exactly as described online. It was clean, spacious & comfortable and had everything we needed for our holiday. It was just a few minutes walk from the funicular, mini-market, restaurants & beaches. There was also a bus-stop just a few yards away. The kitchen probably wouldn't have enough equipment for anyone who wanted to do a lot of cooking (no oven), but if like us you want a fridge, a kettle, a microwave & some crockery & cutlery, it was great. The mini-market was well stocked & we enjoyed buying fresh bread, salad & mozzarella & sitting out on the patio eating it. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone with small children or people with limited mobility unless you've got a car as the walk to the funicular is along a fairly busy road with no proper pavement. There is plenty of car parking at the apartment. Gabriele was friendly & welcoming & so was Virginia, the taxi driver who picked us up at the airport. A thoroughly enjoyable week.
