The two of us were already looking forward to staying here, but were pleasantly surprised by just how beautiful this renovated older-style apartment was. It was a drizzly winter night he we stayed - the owner had left the fairy lights on in the front garden to welcome us, and the place was deliciously warm. We felt very smug looking out at the spectacular views over the river to the city and enjoying a meal we cooked ourselves in the well appointed kitchen (with gas stove)!
The owner has thought of everything you might need, but cleverly tucked everything away so that you have whatever your need at your fingertips without the place feeling fussy. The main bedrooms are spacious and private, perfect for relaxing. The living room is luxurious and I can imagine it would be a really wonderful place to stay with more people.
I would definitely go back, and would stay longer next time to really make the most of this cosy and classy retreat.
