A second small bedroom is available, with another view to the garden, where you can use a day bed and is served by a private bathroom. Another bathroom is also available, side by side with the master bedroom and the living room. A small, but complete, kitchen has all you need to provide meals. As the apartment is very central, you really don't need a car to explore and visit all the interesting places on town.Conveniently located, within a walking distance to all the services and facilities, such as the shopping centre, the well-known cafes, bars, clubs, restaurants and the yachting Marina, museums, theatre, cathedral and nearby the best hotels in town, the Casino and St. Catherine's Park, from where one can have a stunning view of the southern slope of the island, down to the harbour. Located between the city's commercial centre (old town) and the Lido's tourist area, the apartment is a short walking distance to the marina, harbour and sea front 'promenade' and it also has an easy access to the main roads of the island and, therefore, an excellent capability as a base to discover the whole island.More
