These apartments are exactly as described in previous reviews. Went at the beginning of August to apartment 9. The apartment was clean but stank of smoke from the previous residents. As mentioned by others, the noise from the front of the building is very intrusive and makes sleeping difficult. We usually book properties privately and are used to having all amenities at our disposal- it was a shock to come to an apartment to find only the very basics in the way of a kitchen and utensils; a pot, a frying pan four bowls, four plates cutlery, some wooden spoons and a bread knife. Remember if staying in Emilia you need to bring all the extras; washing up liquid, pot scrubs, tin opener, tea pot and cafetiere tea towels and j cloths, and even salt and pepper.
Previous reviews have mentioned the owners- never saw them , so no idea if they are friendly or not. Sheets were changed once during our weeks stay and towels were plentiful. Avoid room 9- no balcony which was a pain. There is a shared balcony at the end of the building but this is shared by those like us with no balcony and has only enough seating for 4.
This sounds more negative than I want it to- big positive was the short walk to the village centre and the beach.
