This was our 3rd holiday at Parterre, each time we've had a different apartment and each time has been brilliant. Apt 6 in 2010 (the only one available when we booked), bigger than we needed. Don't recall any negatives but I can see from the website pics that the bathroom has been upgraded since then, redecorated etc. Apt 5 in 2012, again we have no negatives. This year we went for Apt 4 as we spend most of our time out walking so decided to "go minimal". It was perfect. I did worry a bit beforehand about the bed but it was lovely and comfortable, in fact I often wake up with backache when away from home but didn't experience that at all at Parterre. After the 2nd night we didn't even bother folding it away, there was still plenty of room to sit in the armchairs and watch tv if we wanted. We ate out mostly but the kitchen seemed to have everything that would be needed to cook a full scale meal. Parterre is really well situated for anyone using public transport, and it has plenty of off-road parking if you bring a car. We travel to the island by train - all the way to Sandown, with only a 5min walk to the apartments. We then get a 7-day bus pass - the island bus service is excellent - and ride/walk wherever we want. One bus stop is just around the corner, another barely 5mins walk away. Parterre offers excellent value and a great place to stay, Louise and Barry are lovely and very happy to help with any questions or problems.
